We hope you enjoy watching this amazing feat of human ingenuity as much as we do!
Each Festo eMotion butterfly consists of an Inertial Measurement Unit, 2 servo motors, an accelerometer, gyro, compass and two small lithium-polymer batteries. These beauties have a 19.5 inch wingspan, and weigh in at around .07 lbs. The wings are made from thin carbon rods that are covered with a very thin elastic capacitor film. Their top speed is around 5.5 mph.
