The Bionic Bird is an appropriately named bird robot that can be controlled using smartphone accelerometers and magnetometers. The bird can communicate via Bluetooth up to a range of 100 meters. It can fly for up to eight minutes at a time on a 12-minute charge.
The Bionic Bird's wings flap approximately 18 times a second on a flight just over a mile long. Its tail angle can be adjusted for slow or fast flight, allowing you to use it indoors.
The developers of the Bionic Bird are currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to bring their idea to widespread production reality. A pledge of $100 will secure you a bird by Christmas this year if the campaign hits its fundraising goal. You can even enjoy free shipping if you live in the USA, Canada, European Union or Japan.
