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!

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