Hello friends of innovation!


Robots come in all sort and shape these days and often their functionality and/or appearance is derived from nature. Biomimicry, as this is called, creates stunning examples of nifty engineering although not all devices mimic nature, sometimes nature is merely an inspiration for beautiful (or creepy) machines.

When it looks like a penguin...

More art than nature are these swarming flying penguins called AirPenguins. These helium-filled balloons use ultrasound for navigation as they float autonomous through the room in a way that mimics the swimming of real penguins under water.

Work together

Ants are considered nature’s strong and hard workers making them an ideal candidate for biomimicry. These BionicANTs do not only look like ants, but they can also perform group tasks, just like real ants.

Theme | DRONES


FlyCroTugs stands for Flying miCro Tugging, meaning small drones that can lift or pull objects many times their own weight with the use of smart add-ons and technologies. This approach opens up a plethora of new opportunities, for instance, in dangerous environments. Or just for opening doors.

Mean machine

The Sarcos Guardian GT is not an autonomous robot nor an exoskeleton but a human-operated machine that mimics the dexterity of humans but with much more strength. The ideal companion for a construction site.
