Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

No, really. Look at this thing. They have created a remote controlled machine than can actually fly by flapping wings like a bird.

    wait is this supposed to be like a brand new thing

    I just watched a video in aviation safety like a week ago that talked about how some airports use these things to scare birds away from the runways

    the video did not look particularly recent

    Robofalcon looks more like Robofall-con.

    Doesn't look like it has any upwards mobility or ability to keep itself airborne for extended periods of time.
