BionicKangaroo

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.

macro butterfly wings by linden gledhill look like prismatic quilts

biochemist and photographer linden gledhill has captured a mesmerizing series of images which study the structure of butterfly and moth wings. using various levels of magnification, the macro shots zoom in on what is an incredible and kaleidoscopic visual: the intricacy and delicacy of insects’ wings. specimens of varying species and physical characteristics are collected, documented and later photographed using an automated macro focusing rail. forming an iridescent quilt, the scales layer in depth, volume and chroma, shimmering and glittering in a multidimensional composition. at the range of enlargement gledhill shoots the images at, they are near impossible to recognize as the physical characteristics of the flying species, but instead transform into dazzling perspectives on a part of the natural world.

Old animated to life by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro

  Watch absolutely the Video:


Rino Stefano Tagliafierro brought back the expressive force of gestures of beauty that he springs from the immobility of canvas, animating a sentiment lost to the fixedness masterpieces. It almost seems as if we could walk through the untouched nature and watch the angels sing their chorus. A series of well selected images from the tradition of pictorial beauty are appropriated with the intention of retracing the sentiment beneath the veil of appearance. Beauty in this interpretation is the silent companion of life, inexorably leading from the smile of the baby, through erotic ecstasies to the grimaces of pain that close a cycle destined to repeat as infinitum. Indeed a beautiful work of fleetingtime.
