For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with BiteMyApple.Co to give MacRumors readers a chance to win an iPhone-connected Bionic Bird, which was originally an Indiegogo project.

BiteMyApple.Co didn't develop the Bionic Bird, which actually comes from French company XTIM, but it is a site that is a one-stop shop for all manner of successfully funded Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns that resulted in products that are now available for purchase. The site carries a wide range of unique Apple-related accessories.

As for the Bionic Bird, it's billed as the first biomimetic drone in the world, designed, as the name suggests, to resemble a bird in flight.

The Bionic Bird, which costs $99 from BiteMyApple.co, is controlled through an iPhone app with Bluetooth 4.0 and has a range of more than 100 meters. It features a foam body, which the company says is indestructible, along with a replaceable carbon fiber tail and wing structure.

It's charged through an included pocked-sized Turbo-Charge egg. A 12 minute charge gives the Bionic Bird enough juice to fly for eight minutes, and an egg holds enough power for around 12 flights. At nine grams, the bird is super light, and it can fly both indoors and outdoors. When outside, it reaches speeds of up to 12 miles per hour.

"BiteMyApple, my bionic cat has stopped responding to the commands from my phone! Should I unpair and re-pair it or is there maybe a software update to fix this?"

"No, that's actually the programmed behavior. Lifelike, no?"
