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.

Indiegogo campaign to fund production of a simple stripped-down handheld console which is designed to easily create your own games (and can connect to upto 128 other devices) - video embedded below:
Gamebuino is a retro portable game console project based on Arduino. It allows you to make your own games, and even more.
It is designed so you can easily get started with your game, yet it is capable enough to make fully-featured 8-bit games and other badass projects. The library allows you to start programming your game in minutes, and the console is shipped ready to run, yet customizable thanks to the extension ports which allow you to add modules (like an accelerometer or wireless communication), or to connect several Gamebuino consoles to play in multiplayer with your mates.
