Festo Bionic Learning Lab demonstrates their new technologies inspired by nature. Another step towards artificial pets replacing extincted animals, or just an exposé of scientific ability?

I have seen this movie before. I thought of it as technical ability that just has the shape of a piguin. They also present it as a technical solution. I do agree that it is a step towards bladerunner-like creatures. They also made some other creatures, like jellyfish.

Great showcase, Tijn! I added some links.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
