BionicKangaroo Is The Future Of Cute
Move over cat videos, because this BionicKangaroo is the future ruler of that 'cute' part of the internet. Designed by automaton experts Festo, BionicKangaroo is controlled byn armband sensor that allows users to give the 7kg bundle a command to follow its owner anywhere they go.
Remarkably, the robotic marsupial recharges through the kinetic energy created from its powerful hops. Each hop can send the meter-tall robot 40cm into the air, while covering almost a meter of ground with every leap. BionicKangaroo is the latest in a long string of nature-inspired Festo concepts that have mimicked Penguins and Elephant trunks.
