Powered by a pocket-sized USB-rechargeable Turbo Charged Egg, the app-enabled Bionic Remote Control Bird is the world’s first furtive drone and also the closest you’ll ever get to literally flying with the birds. While biomimetic engineering allows it to blend into nature without disturbing anyone’s natural habitat, you’ll have to look out for hungry predators.

With the Flying App for iOS and Android, your smartphone becomes your remote control with a range of up to 100 meters.
