Incredible Flapping 3D Printed Weirdness Takes to the Sky (VIDEO)

3D Printed Flapping Crawler Take to the Sky

We do not always know exactly what everyone is 3D printing with Shapeways, Every now and then we see some odd forms coming out of the 3D printers and we speculate what they might be.  A sliding bracket to connect a camera to a dog, a rolling half mount to amplify bird calls, or a weirdly flapping crawler to take flight over Japan?
Check out the videos of the ornithopter that was modeled in Autodesk 123D and 3D printed with Shapeways as it is first tested, then launched into outdoor flight.  If anyone understands Japanese and would like to translate the site, please feel free to share more information on the project.

    Impressive, especially if you watch the following videos as well… I can’t wait for the first 3D printed life-size Mothra!

    May be weird but it’s certainly cool!
