Beautiful Machines

Monsters, not. I’ve posted their airships before, but these “robot penguins” are almost indistinguishable from the real thing if you’re not paying attention — the way they move is so fluid and natural. And simple — it looks like only a few servos are needed to control them. Now we just need to see them team up with Deep Flight and build submarines — imagine this split with the Innespace dolphin boat. Crazy fun.

    Very neat conceps.
    Way more dynamic and flexible designs than most traditional robots, It’s almost hypnotising to look at the way they move.

    Am I the only one who’s incredibly jealous of the workspace they are testing those blimps in? I wanna work there.
