Robot Kangaroo

Did you know that when a kangaroo is born, it resembles a pink, hairless worm? And when it matures, it’ll be able to hop forwards at over 40 miles per hour, but won’t even be able to walk backwards!

This incredibly realistic robot kangaroo was built by a company called “Robotechnology” for a movie, that unfortunately was never made. And you’ll never guess when it was built — 1991; over 20 years ago!

Nowadays, animatronics technology continues to be used in the film industry, but the art of creating a fully functional robot has largely been replaced with CGI.
