Festo free R&D philosophy

Festo free R&D philosophy

Amazing what Festo has been able achieve with their "free" R&D work.
Jellyfish, Penguin, manta ray and most famously Smartbird.
Look around their website Festo

Smartbird, lightweight carbon fibre RC ornithopter, one of the first truly controllable ornitopthers. (good subject for a later blogpage)
Nice youtube movie of smartbird

The Festo Manta Ray floating around their atrium, nice!


Festo Air jelly movie   


Festo elephant trunk manipulator

More large companies should invest in this way.
The corporate image will also be enhanced.
Who is next?
