Mechanical wings are about to be replaced with mechanical creeps.
The idea behind the new ‘mesa’ is to use the same technology to fly, which could reduce costs, but also increase the chances of them catching on fire.
According to Google’s chief research officer Rob Beale, “we think that it would be a very interesting approach for a flying robot.”
In a video, Beale said that while the new flying robot will be the “perfect tool for Christmas, it will also be a perfect tool for people who want to make their own Christmas tree or decorate their own backyard.”
“We think that the idea of a robot that can fly is very attractive and it’s also a very nice tool for a holiday maker, for Christmas decoration, for making a makeshift Christmas tree,” Beale told TechRadar.
“I think it could be very successful.”
Themes for the new creep are wide ranging, and include ‘mushrooms’ and ‘snow’.
The technology that powers the new mesa could be used to build custom flying machines, like the ones we saw at last year’s CES.
Google has also been working on a new version of the flying robot dubbed the ‘Mechanical Wing’ that will be more versatile and cheaper to produce.
This model is about to become a reality, but Beale says it will only be a prototype.
For now, the mesa is being built by an Australian company called the Flying Machines company.
Beale told me that the company is currently building the mesas for two customers: a Christmas market in Sydney and an airport in Melbourne.
He said that the mesagery will be built out of metal that has been used in aerospace for the past 30 years.
But the company hopes to soon expand into the aerospace industry, and it already has a contract to build the mesaic wings for an airline in the US.
It will also help them test the technology.
If everything goes according to plan, the new wing will cost around $15,000 and will have wings made of steel, aluminum, and titanium.
