Bart Jansen's Cat-Copter: VIDEO


Tribute or tragic?

Dutch artist Bart Jansen loved his cat Orville (named after Orville Wright, of course) so much that when the cat died he had it taxidermied and made it into a cat-copter.

He added that Orville will soon be 'flying with the birds' stating: 'Oh how he loved birds. He will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday. So this hopping will soon change into steady flight.'

Orville, has, of course, gone viral. Does it give you paws? And what's the weirdest thing you've ever seen someone do with a dead pet?

  3. I've never much liked considering my future burial or cremation, but I'd relish the idea of my properly embalmed/taxidermied head flying around to annoy conservatives.

    By that time, the quadracopter could probably even be made entirely autonomous, with flashing eyes and a loudspeaker. So, if all goes according to plan, in forty years or so, you may see me flying overhead on my way to the Republican convention.
