What you are seeing in this image is not a real dragonfly, but the BionicOpter by a German company called Festo. This is a drone, like the ones I wrote about last week like the Savior Aerial Robot and the others.
The BionicOpter is about one and a half feet long, and its wings are very much like a dragonfly. You can even watch it in slow motion after the jump, and it really looks like something from nature.
Festo can operate through a smartphone, and it should be available sometime in April. I have no idea what this will be used for, but I suppose if you have any dreams of flying armies of drones, the Festo could be the standard.
I don’t see a way to purchase the Festo, but I would love to see it in action.
