Edwin Van Ruymbeke comes from a long line of inventors. He worked for many years in the family business with his grandfather and father who were the inventors of TIM, the rubber-band bird well known to the general public. As a result, He used his aeronautic engineering studies to concentrate on flapping flight. During this entire period, Edwin dreamed of being able to replace the rubber-band bird with an electric motor and a battery to make a radio-controllable model. Edwin finally managed, one evening of great inspiration, one of those evenings that you are never sure to be able to recreate, one of those evenings that you would be quite incapable of retracing, he created the Bionic Bird.
