RoboSwift is a micro airplane that is modeled after a common bird. It carries a mini-camera for discreet surveillance and sends footage wirelessly to a remote monitor. The airplane’s “feathers” fold backwards and its tail planes are transparent, creating a surprisingly lifelike effect.
RoboSwift was designed by a student team from the Netherlands as part of a competition to create innovative unmanned micro-aerial and ground vehicles.
