Robotic Bird will be a cool gadget!

A robotic bird has recently been invented by German company FESTO. This robot flaps its wings to enable it to fly just like seagulls. It is very energy efficient and very cool. I came to know about while feeding my Munias and watching Net25's Convergence. What a coincidence, I got 2 munia's as pets and FESTO released their robotic bird at almost the same time.

According to FESTO officials, the SmartBird is an ultralight but powerful flight model with excellent aerodynamic qualities and extreme agility. With SmartBird, FESTO has succeeded in deciphering the flight of birds - one of the oldest dreams of mankind.

The robotic bird can take off and fly and glide more efficiently that cannot be achieved by other flying machines. Speaking of efficiency and safety, can it be envisioned to replaced commercial airlines? My guess is absolutely never! It could become a good hobby though.
