TED gives a first-hand glimpse of the Festo SmartBird in action


Man has possessed the power of technology-assisted flight for over a century now, but the way that birds are able to fly is something that has eluded us until now.

We first covered the Festo SmarBird earlier this year. Now, TED and Festo team leader Markus Fischer give us the flight of the bird once again, this time to a standing ovation in England. As a bonus, Fischer voice has a striking resemblance to a former governor of California.
