Trained Birds and Technology

25 Points

This badge signifies earners have listened to the podcast How Trained Birds are Advancing Technology with Dr David Lentink  I am often reminded of all the incredible things animals and training brings to the world. My guest this episode is the perfect example. You are going to love this fascinating interview with zoologist and engineer Dr David Lentink. David has merged his passion for nature and technology to study flight. He runs the Bio-Inspired Research and Design (BIRD) Lab at Stanford University. We discussed training various species of birds, training in wind tunnels, examining exquisite details of how birds fly, training a parrot to wear goggles, using technology to facilitate stress free restraint for health care, flying robots and so much more. I could have talked with David for hours! There was so much interesting material to cover. Visit the episode web page for links to articles and video clips mentioned in the interview.

Listening time approx 1 hour 20 minutes
