Clearly there will be major benefits, however today not many enginners from non related fields have the knowhow and the equipment to implement FPGA designs. It is important to start introducing FPGAs during the standard college years not only to electronics students. Then some nice and user friendly application software with low cost programmenrs.
It took some time to make the LabView userfriendly, so I feel it will also take some time for FPGAs.
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.
