Dutch artist Bart Jansen had a cat named Orville. One day, Orville was hit by a car and killed. Any normal person would have buried or cremated the little guy. But Jansen had a different plan. He had Orville stuffed and then turned him into a helicopter.
By adding a motorized propeller to each paw, Orville flies like a hovercraft. The video below shows the final flying test of the Orvillecopter:
Jansen’s explanation for this invention is just as strange as the thing itself. “Now he is flying with the birds,” he writes. “The greatest goal a cat could ever reach!”
The Orvillecopter made its debut at the KunstRai ArtFair in Amsterdam that ended Sunday.
