Think about what the world would be like if ostriches could fly. The average person gets spooked when a pigeon or seagull swoops to close.
If ostriches –which can weigh up to 200 lbs– could fly, life would be f***ing terrifying.
This didn’t stop Dutch artist Bart Jansen, who has already taken YouTube by storm with this video of a cat he turned into a quadcopter.
Now he’s back and he has decided to add propellers to a 9 foot tall bird because there is no god:
Thankfully, the aptly named OstrichCopter can’t get more than a few feet off the ground and we can’t imagine any scenario in which it would have a practical application, so it probably won’t ever go into mass production.
At least, we really hope they don’t.
