MetaFly | A New Flying Experience. by Edwin Van Ruymbeke — Kickstarter
From the maker of the Bionic Bird, a kickstarted ornithopter, comes a new flyer. But, it looks like a bug, but if you look carefully it's basically a smaller version of the bionic bird in terms of mechanism

Concept for an electric ornithopter backpack airplane. Hrm, I wonder if a turbine powerplant might work here, if the turbine can switch between shaft power mode for electricity generation, and gas jet mode for flight where the wings are fixed like a glider to have more conventional flight like a motorized glider.

Weird flapping wing type wind power generator,reversing an ornithopter drive so it converts linear motion to rotary motion, then spins a conventional electric generator.

Some sort of weird flapping mechanism that is used to recover energy from low speed flows. This might be more attractive actually for low speed ocean current setups.
