Here's a full TED video of a Robot that flies like a bird (they even show the mechanics / how it works): http://bit.ly/nhJ15V Lest you think this post is not about G+ be warned that Larry Page has often said he imagines Google connected to our brains, and Google is working on cars that drive themselves. Do you think Google robots are far behind? Some robotocists think its important to make robots look and behave like things in nature, so humans can better interact with them. There's probably other reasons to do this as well. For more on the mix between man & machine, see my Kurzweil post: http://bit.ly/pCuHCr

  1. "the other reasons to do this as well" is, of course, remote surveillance (and that's where the funding money comes from). "look! up in the sky? is it a bird? is it a plane? is it an autonomous ministry of cultural purity weaponized stealth drone?"
