Festo's BionicKangaroo

Festo’s BionicKangaroo an energy-efficient, jump kinematics based on a natural model. It can recover the energy when jumping, store it and efficiently use it for the next jump.    Take a look at the video…

Festo has technologically reproduced the unique way a kangaroo moves.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 behavior. The system is controlled by gestures.
