RoboSwift is a robotic bird with wings that can move like a real bird (i.e. can flap) and folds its feathers backwards like a swift.
This prototype has been invented by researchers at the Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands.
This robot was originally designed for (and with) the Dutch police which can send it to monitor risk zones or individuals without being noticed.
The fact that the robot looks and moves naturally gives it absolute discretion.
Watch the video below; the end is rather amusing: “Sorry, no tree found” : -))
