Elias Knubben, an industrial designer and Head of the Bionic Learning Network at Festo, demonstrates the future of the company's robotic research by employing queues from nature to create a bird with flapping wings and other nature-inspired devices. The company makes extensive use of SolidWorks CAD software to prove out designs before they are built. Previously, Festo relied on helium to produce airborne flying penguins, jellyfish and rays. Watch towards the end of this video as the SolidWorks World 2013 audience of 4,500 follow the flight of Festo's bionic bird.
