• AirPenguins


    Thanks to their 3-D structure with Fin Ray Effect® at the front and back, they glide through the water just like real penguins.

  • AquaPenguins


    They have an energy-efficient streamlined shape and can manoeuvre by themselves even in the tightest of spaces: the AquaPenguins.

  • AirJelly


    The first indoor flying object with peristaltic drive: its eight tentacles allow the artificial jellyfish to swim using the recoil principle.

  • Air_ray


    Made possible by its lightweight design and the lift provided by helium, the Air_ray “swims” in a sea of air like a manta ray in water.

  • Aqua_ray


    Whether by means of dynamically beating wings or elegant gliding, the Aqua_ray can be manoeuvred through the water in an easy and energy-efficient manner.

  • Airic's_arm


    Bones, muscles and joints: the combination of mechatronics and biological structures offers new possibilities for automated motion sequences.

  • Fluidic Muscle

    Fluidic Muscle

    From a natural muscle to a pneumatic drive: the Fluidic Muscle enables procedures that come very close to human movements.

  • Airacuda


    Fast, agile and almost without sound: the pneumatically driven Airacuda follows its natural role model in shape and movement.

Bionic Learning Network

Highlights 2006–2009 

Festo has been dealing intensively with the bionics field since the start of the 1990s. That is why Festo brought the Bionic Learning Network to life in 2006. Since then, every year at the Hannover Messe trade fair we have presented the latest bionic technology platforms that have been developed as part of the network. Click through the highlights of the first four years.
