After Bianca's adorable glittery iBird, Trend Hunter needed to bring masculinity back to robotic birds, so we bring you a mean robotic Flaco. The â€œFALCO ROBOT GBRSâ€ (aka, Gregarious Bird Removal System) is a meanie to other birdies, because aims to scare the hell out of them. Flocks of birds pose a serious problem at airports, and Falco is the answer. The ecological design requires power for only about a minute after takeoff, then "flies like a goshawk, exploiting thermal updrafts."
The system is the result of ten years of experimentation and ornithological studies by Bird Raptor. It is a flying aircraft, radio controlled by an operator, that perfectly imitates in the aerial movements (circling, attack, overflight etc.) a big raptor, arousing immediately in the gregarious birds a reaction of hasty escape. Falco is a life-size mechanical replica of a female goshawk with a 5.25-foot wingspan. In a test at the Genoa airport, a remote-controlled Falco reportedly dispersed 1,000 seagulls.
See the iBird, who could work as a sidekick, luring victims before Falco goes for the kill!
