Named after the pioneering aviator Orville Wright, Orville the Cat met his maker further to an altercation with a speeding car. His Dutch owner, Bart Jansen, decided to pay tribute to his feline friend, turning him into “Orvillecopter”…
Should you want to see this half cat, half machine quadricopter, Orvillecopter can be found at the Kunstrai art festival in Amsterdam.
Mr. Jansen says that a radio control helicopter expert was responsible for the transformation but admits Orvillecopter is a little unsteady in the air.
“He will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday.”
Cool, if not a little freaky!
Update: we’ve managed to locate some footage showing Orvillecopter in action. Check it out!
