AirJelly houses two lithium-ion polymer accumulator batteries rated at 8 V and 400 mA, which can be completely charged in half an hour and are AirJelly's sole source of power. A connected central electric drive unit transmits the force to a bevel gear wheel and then to eight spur gears in sequence. These gears power eight shafts, each of which activates a crank; these in turn move the jellyfish



This so very cool and alien looking to me. I swear I saw a supposed UFO video that had one of these in it. I thought you guys would enjoy this.
Here is the companies web site.

Oh man, now they are building things that look like UFOs to confuse us even more.
-"I saw a UFO"
-"NO dear, what you saw was a robotic giant jelly fish. From now on, when you see a UFO what you are actually seeing is just a robotic giant jelly fish"

pretty cool, any idea on what the intended use is?
the fluidity of how it moves is very impressive.

Oh, what a wonderful toy! Of course, if the maunfacturers develop models that can fly outside, then sightings of them are going to add horribly to these boards.

Saying that, I want one. No. Scrap that. I need one!

Hehe I thought the same thing when I saw it...."I gotta have one". I think they would be great as a possible probe for another planet or moon.I'm not sure if it could carry a payload of instrumentation though.

They also make the Air Ray.....this is pretty cool too.....Still not sure if these would be able to carry any payload though.

HAVE the manufacturers developed models that can fly outdoors in windspeeds upto 10-15mph? If so I want one. The ray not the Jelly fish.

That is one crazy looking thing. What do you suppose all the applications for something like that would be.

Heres the D.A.R.P.A. Big Dog I know it has been seen by many.

I think there should be a forum on the board called New Technologies. That's why I put this in skunk works because I didn't know were else to put this thread. Yea I created a thread about the DARPA"big dog" about 1-2 years ago...not sure if they have progressed any further with that one....pretty amazing though.

That's cool. Thanks for sharing. If I saw that just floating around my town, I would have freaked and took pics to post on ATS!

It is still so amazing to see the great things that we as human beings can accomplish. Makes me think of all the technological advancements that have been made over the past 40 years. Here is a different video of the flying Ray.
