Da Vinci Papercraft: Ornithopter

Among Leonardo da Vinci's numerous designs are plans for an ornithopter. An ornithopter is a machine that flys by imitating the flapping motion that birds use. Some examples of fictional ornithopters seen in movies are the aircraft that the Wookies use in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and also the "flapters" in Studio Ghibli's Castle in the Sky. This paper model of Da Vinci's invention is offered by Czech Radio Leonardo here.
