Harmonic Wing

Spring drone
  [vote for,

Take a springy body with two weighted ends and embed weighted spinning wheels with really precisely controllable speed and coordination. Change the resonance by changing the speed of the wheels. Attach a feather to both ends. Harmonic wing.

       Why do this?
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 08 2017

       Because you can. Because it will be beautiful, you’ll be able to switch harmonics from Long swoops to quivering stasis. Because there will be no moving parts other than every molecule moving in relation to every other molecule. Because Donald Trump is a trump card. Because North Korea. Because the time has come the walrus said, to talk of many things, of Korean Massage suicide prevention emergency ambulance lawyers, of temperature orgies in the sky, and wings.

       Ah, with you now, thanks. I thought you were expecting it to fly or sutin.
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 09 2017

       If this doesn’t fly I will eat my own H.
JesusHChrist, Oct 09 2017

       Well, I have to say that the probability of this thing flying is non-zero. The design parameters leave a lot of wiggle room, literally.   

       May I ask a question? Have you ever built something that flew, in the sense of gaining altitude, or maintaining altitude over a significant period of time?

       May I ask another question? What was it?
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 09 2017

       As I said before, there is no relationship with that woman. I did not have sexual relations with that woman.
JesusHChrist, Oct 09 2017

       Good. Sex with relations is frowned upon outside Norfolk.   

       What did you build that flew?

       a pumpkin with a feather in it
JesusHChrist, Oct 09 2017

       That's impressive, but I've seen it on Youtube.
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 09 2017

       This might be an imprint from the formative looking up, cot years.   

       Although, more dynamic wings seem a no brainer to me with advancing computational advances.

       //might be an imprint// Oh, dear. Are we doing Primal Scenes?

       My socks are choking me.
JesusHChrist, Oct 10 2017

       I say let your socks win. Starving your brain of oxygen for a moment may "reboot" it, and you might forget about feathers for a while...
That said, this thing might a least make a good cat toy.

       I was thinking mobile of the feather kind, even dream catcher but clever minds know best.

       Escher and aperiodic tiling dreamcatchers for etsy! fun...
