Welcome to the water-fueled salad-spinner cake box. Here's a muscle-free salad spinner that works from the power of a sink faucet and rotates your salad greens faster than the manual version no matter how much muscle you put into it. Rick Crammond based his spinner on a design invented by Nikola Tesla using his CD Turbine. The turbine combines CDs or DVDs, their spindle case (or cake box as it's sometimes called) and a bunch of magnets. Using your faucet or garden hose, you can spin your greens at 1,000 rpm, giving you superbly dry greens in seconds.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
