    ... Festo is developing sort of a "zoo" with their flying, swimming and crawling robots - https://www.festo.com/group/en/cms/10156.htm

    I built a rubber band powered balsa wood and tissue paper ornithopter when I was about 14. Found the plans in an Encyclopedia Britannica. Wasn't particularly practical though.
