Artist Turns Dead Cat Into Remote Controlled Helicopter
By John Yong, 05 Jun 2012
Some people choose to bury or cremate their pets, or maybe even stuff them—but not Dutch Bart Jansen, who turned his dead feline into a remote controlled helicopter, called the ‘Orvillecopter’.
Named after his cat ‘Orville’, that was killed by a car—Jansen used its outstretched body as the frame for the Ovillecopter—attaching rotors to each of the cat’s paws and a power source under its belly—creating the first ever remote-controlled ‘cat-copter’.
According to Jansen, he said that Orville has achieved the “greatest goal a cat could ever reach”—flying with the birds.
Innovative or morbid? You be the judge!
