It can save you alot of time to realise that such feat is not possible to be done electronically just as accurate as that bird, since each motor would require constant monitoring for desynchronization and top of that the power required to control each motor, sensor and a high performance cpu would be so huge that the battery alone would be a weight of stone, + each component required adding more and more weight, the most advanced robot is not even close to be able to match a man running with obstacles, now put it to the test with a man experienced in parkour and youll realise that its a dead end.

Ok .If this isn't new and innovative just extrapolate what today's technology is capable of.
You don't understand me!

I am almost sure, you aren't a vegetarian and you doesn't cry every time getting chicken for lunch or diner
The bird from the video doesn't been hurt and she doesn't fly thru obstacles for somebody pleasure .Actually she does the same hundreds of times per day when is free in the Nature driven by the same reasons. That's why she is so good in doing such a things.

If youre thinking it was electronically controlled i doubt it very much, i believe it was trained to do so by its own, correct me if im wrong though but such devices has been only tested on lab rats and yes they are pretty sick and retarded inventions of some immoral guys who call themselves scientists..

Well now youre entering another type of debate, ofc there is right and wrong, you can simply live to ignore it and live however you want to live and yet your actions can be still classified as right or wrong, its quite senseless to assume otherwise.
