Dead Cat Turned Into Remote-Control Flying Helicopter

I can’t see how cats would be happy about this development … Writes Deborah Netburn in the LA Times:

We’ve seen a lot of strange things on the Internet, but this dead cat turned into a remote-control flying helicopter may be the strangest yet. The cat helicopter was conceived by Dutch artist Bart Jansen, and debuted for the public at the KunstRai ArtFair in Amsterdam that ended Sunday. Jansen calls his creation the Orvillecopter and describes it as “half-cat, half-machine.” The Orvillecopter is exactly what it looks like: A taxidermied cat with a plastic propeller attached to each paw. No animals were harmed for this project. The cat, who was conveniently named Orville, belonged to Jansen and died after he was hit by a car.

  2. They are not laser weapons. Not impressed!

    I think this guy needs a better hobby. Maybe I’m a little sensitive, but this just seems a little fucked.

    Is it just my morbid sense of humor or did anyone else crack up besides me?  Somewhere Bill Hader and Andy Samberg are inspired.

    This can only be inspired by the work Survival Research Laboratories did in the early to mid ’80s under the aegis of Mark Pauline. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survival_Research_Laboratories
