Bird robot
There are a lot of robots that simulate the behavior and imitate the form, structure and movements of some animals. The engineers copy them because they know that the evolution had have millions of years to get solutions that gives the maximum performance with the minimum energy expenditure, so reproduce the nature allow us resolve problems that in otherwise hardly we could resolve. Fill your mind with "Robots with body inspired by animals"
