Meet The OstrichCopter. You Won’t Regret It (You Might)
Some may say such an invention is odd, creepy, or even go so far as to say unnecessary (pfft).
The taxidermy Ostrich, was turned into a flying object with the use of drones.
But the OstrichCopter is so much more than your run-of-the-mill, flying taxidermy drone.
Bart Jensen, is the Dutch artist who is behind this contraption.
“Half ostrich, half helicopter. Always handy to have around” states Jensen.
The artist is also known for creating a number of taxidermy machines, such as the Orvillecopter – a flying machine made from his stuffed, deceased cat, Orville.
His work has sparked anger among some animal rights groups, with a Dutch animal welfare party protesting against the Orvillecopter.
The gallery which exhibited the flying feline was graffitied with the words “kill the animal killers”.
In the case of the OstrichCopter, it’s the world’s first flying ostrich. And as Jensen explains, he has built the the true, ostrich dream – being able to fly and escape those untrustworthy wildebeests.
Which, at the end of the day, isn’t that what we all want?
