Man Turns Taxidermied Cat into a Remote-Controlled Quadrocopter

After Dutch artist Bart Jansen's cat Orville got hit by a car and died, he decided, rather than burying it, to have it stuffed. Not a totally uncommon, if very creepy practice. What separates Orville, the taxidermied cat from other deceased and stuffed pets, is the remote control that determines his flight patterns. Jansen, under what must have been some incredible drug induced state form of inspiration, had Orville turned into a fully operable quadrocopter, of course only after an adequate period of mourning.

There really isn't much else to say about this, and if you're still reading after the images above, you might want to check out the video of a post-humous Orville in action below. If not, it's cool, we totally understand. Flying dead cats aren't exactly our thing either.
