Autonomous aircraft are already extremely useful. A company called Youbionics has recently come up with a way to further increase their potential. They introduced a project called Drone for Handy, which includes the creation of aircraft with bionic arms.
Our arms are a crucial instrument developed in the process of evolution. Scientists all around the globe have spent countless years trying to create artificial manipulators that can compare to these natural miracles. Technological advancement has finally made this possible.
But why should artificial arms be restricted to robots on land? This was the thought process of Youbionics founder Federico Ciccarese. Thus, the decision was made to develop a new design for their drones.
The concept is based on the use of a pair of Handys manipulators, which can be controlled using eleven SG90 or Arduino Nano servos. This device will have severely limited functionality, and Youbionics experts admit that the project is in its early stages and requires additional development. The company hopes that their idea will push inventors in the right direction, serving as the first step towards creating a new class of devices.
