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.

    Can it drop a nuke on mean countries that aren't playing nice?

    That would save a lot of time.

    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.

    Someone should give Germans a sitcom; the first episode could be called "Germans build a bird".
