Description

The AirPenguins, which fly as a gathering, precisely reenact the developments of their common partners: because of their 3-D structure with Fin Ray Effect® at the front and back, they float through the water simply like genuine penguins.

 

Their latently contorting flippers empower the penguins to fly the two advances and in reverse. The lightness of the ultra-light AirPenguins is guaranteed by method for a helium-filled ballonet.

 

Self-sufficient frameworks with aggregate conduct

 

The gathering of three self-rulingly flying penguins drifts through a characterized zone of room, which is mapped by ultrasound transmission stations.

 

The penguins move about unreservedly inside this space. A microcontroller empowers the penguins to investigate the space freely, or inside a characterized set of parameters.
