You thought alpha dog was terrifying?

The rise of our robot overlords is imminent, and they have revealed their favored form: the kangaroo.

The mad scientists at automation-technology company Festo have given the kangaroo—a terrifying creature in its own right, capable of leaping great distances at high speeds and drowning (!) potential predators—an impenetrable metal skin and reinforced limbs.

We do not ride on the kangaroo; it rides upon us.

Scientists have manufactured a robot 'heart' that runs on pee
A team of British scientists have successfully manufactured a prototype robot "heart" that runs on human urine, moving the world one-step closer to a slightly more scatological version of The Matrix. The heart, which was fabricated using a 3D printer, is actually a battery made out of microorganisms that hungrily devour the urine, converting human waste into energy. With just 2 milliliters of your liquid waste stuff, the heart can charge up to 3.5 volts and make 33 "pumps."
