That is really lovely.
I visited their website and they have many facilities globally. Thing is, what exactly they do/manufacture and who they are is pretty amorphous. They seem to be into pistons and mechanical systems that would be useful in robotics.
That they have deciphered the secret of real, bird-like flight, and reproduced it mechanically is outstanding and has garnered them some considerable respect though.
They do have a line of experimental bots that can carry things about and are touted as being safe for human contact, that’s a big thing, safe for contact. Maybe they’re going to build the bots that will take care of us ageing boomers?:-)
I am seeing the proverbial “Trojan Horse”…..Lots of uses….especially if…used for surveillance….
