Zeen Technology-  The development of technology that mimics real life can allow us to understand biology and dynamics of movement.  The work of scientist and artistry is combined to deliver a nexuses bringing to form the robotic Kangaroo “From the Future” to our current reality.

The news of the “latest robotic critter from the inventors at automation-technology company Festo is a kangaroo, of all things, and it hops along in much the same way as the animal on which it is based — though, it has to be said, not quite as gracefully. This is one of latest creations like the “biomimetic” robot designs, which “take their operational characteristics from animals such as, robo-bird that flaps its wings to fly, for instance, or a flexible robotic arm modeled on an elephant’s trunk.”

“The BionicKangaroo is the company’s attempt to mimic the leaping locomotion of the common kangaroo, which, like most forms of animal motion, is deceptively complex. And like the real kangaroo (or its smaller cousin the wallaby, which this robot more closely resembles), the bot absorbs the force of the landing to both soften the impact and provide a springlike boost to the next jump.”

“At the moment, the motion of the robot is a bit jittery. BionicKangaroo, controlled by a Myo armband at the moment, but could just as easily be directed through computer or voice commands. More information on the way it works can be found at Festo’s website, and IEEE Spectrum has additional reporting,” reports NBC News.

Consider, what the development of robotic animals can teach us about the physicality, neurology and movement. The innovation is a test of creativity but also a leap forward to aiding in the development of bionics. What art teaches us is to think beyond the impossible to the potential of the unrealized.

In a nexuses one development has impact on the many. The creation of the disability access has led to automation and viable and functional accessibility for all towards mobility. The BionicKangaroo is one version of the possible bionic man or pet in the present future.
