Dutch Boy Turns Dead Pet Rat Into Flying Tri-Copter

September 10, 2014


With the help of that weirdo that turned his dead cat into a quadrocopter, Dutch youngster Pepeijn Bruins now has a tri-copter created with the stuffed body of his beloved pet rat, Ratjetoe. Me? I would have just buried him...in an ancient Indian burial ground and brought him back to life.

Pepeijn said: "I loved him very much. He always liked to be cuddled and he would run up my clothes and hide."

Keen to keep his pet's memory alive Pepeijn looked at ways of holding onto Ratjetoe.

Luckily, if that's how you want to put it, Dutch inventors Arjen Beltman and Bart Jansen were on hand to help him achieve his goal.

The duo were naturally Pepeijn's first port of call after seeing their previous work, which includes producing the world's first stuffed, radio-controlled flying cat.

The inventors are also working on creating a flying shark copter. You know, because that's something that should exist in this world. Will they use it in a prank to scare beachgoers?! *shaking Magic 8-Ball* Damn, this thing lost all its liquid.

Keep going for a video of the rat taking flight.

Thanks to Rev Dr Dom, who agrees it's only a matter of time before somebody makes a sweet turtle-copter. Could be a long time though (turtles live forever).

    Kid, you're getting the wrong kind of inspiration.

    I give it two years before they're making a dead human pentacontacopter.

    Aww! :-D So cranky we are today :-( Didn't your mommy love you enough when you were little baby?
    My bad homes!

    I wish I could cheer up both you and dougfunnay:-) I'm sure that underneath your cold sour exterior there is warmth and love. But unfortunate I'm not sure there's enough laughter in the world to rescue you. Maybe Jesus or Superman can, who knows.

  • dougfunnay

    now they need to have the cat copter chase the rat copter around

  • Fredrik Pettersen

    Of course someone have already done it mate. We live in a crazy world, that's for sure.


  • GeneralDisorder

    The cat copter is not chasing the ratcopter. You missed the joke. And yes, the catcopter has been posted on Geekologie (and as we all know by the time stuff gets through the Geekologie queue it's been on Reddit for several months)

    Ratjetoe I CHOOSE YOU!!!!!

    All pokemon jokes aside this is straight up nightmare fuel.

  • Tyguy

    No offense, but that was barely a Pokemon joke

  • Pwnsauce

    Apparently you don't know about Rattata
