[Festo YouTube Video] Festo has developed robotic penguins that use "bionic" tech - i.e. that modeled on the mechanics of living tissue. The result is something eerily "real." Add to that the fact that the things are autonomous and I am hooked. Of course, Festo didn't stop at the fluid dynamics of water. They have flying penguins too (at around the 1:00 mark). Take that nature!
In other news, YouTube now suspends embedding at the request of a video's poster. A lot of people are taking advantage of this. I suspect we'll see a lot of disabling initially, followed by an equilibrium as people realize that embedding means more views and more views means more exposure, no matter where it happens.
