Feathered, Pneumatic Articulating Wings

If you’ve longed to have wearable wings sized just for you, turn to Alexis Noriega, also known as The Crooked Feather. She has an Etsy shop set up for commissions for one of a kind feathered wings and any sort of wings you can imagine — for example, she made NASA space shuttle wings for a pageant contestant recently. One of her most stunning creations, however, is a pair of fully articulated, pneumatic wings. She demonstrates how they work in the above video. She’s working on posting a tutorial detailing how she made the wings but also accepts orders for similar sets. They cost $2,500.

The feathers aren’t all from birds. She explains:

What are the feathers? – hand painted broadcloth glued together with construction adhesive over a wire. The real feathers at the top are Eurasian eagle owl (cruelty free) and goose shoulder (sadly not CF).

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
