Robotic recreation of the Kangaroo form put together by Festo to demonstrate energy-efficient movement (this was initially announced on April the 1st, but turns out to be real) - video embedded below:
With the BionicKangaroo, Festo has technologically reproduced the unique way a kangaroo moves. Like its natural model, it can recover the energy when jumping, store it and efficiently use it for the next jump.
On the artificial kangaroo, Festo intelligently combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology to produce a highly dynamic system. The stable jump kinematics plus the precise control technology ensure stability when jumping and landing. The consistent lightweight construction facilitates the unique jumping behaviour. The system is controlled by gestures.

First prize in Science’s Visualization Challenge (video category) went to this NASA video by Greg Shirah, Horace Mitchell, and Tom Bridgman. It shows Earth’s “climate engine” — the wind patterns and ocean currents that are powered by the sun.

Get this! A show about two “awkward” cis white heterosexual girls pretending to be freaky lesbians so they can be popular! Because being out in high school makes you SO cool ! The get invited to all the parties now that they are lesbians! The show is a comedy too, you can laugh at many of the jokes ranging from “Does that mean I’m the butch ?” ー because you know you need one girl and one boy in ever lesbian relationship, to “I’ve need some lesbian energy in my life” ー because lesbians are fun objects, like scented candles ! The show is very quirky and I bet EVERY ally in town will be tuning to see it ! Who do you ship?
