You Can Influence The World Around You: Steve Jobs

Here is a great message from Steve Jobs. I believe every creative genius worth his salt realizes it. And that's the moment of truth that begins to change everything around us.

When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and you're life is just to live your life inside the world.

Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money. That's a very limited life.

Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use

Creativity: Robotic Bird That Flies Like A Real One

Learning from the nature is not something new. Leonardo Da Vinci was watching birds closely to understand how they fly. But modern automation technologies have made it possible to mimic the nature in real detail. We can now go beyond observation and mimic the mechanisms and movements as well.

German company Festo specializes in automation and they have created a robot bird that flies! Festo's bionic learning projects are impressive. Apart from this bird you can also view a bionic kangaroo developed by them.
