“BugJuggler is a 70 ft (21 m) tall robot that its designers claim will hurl full-size cars into the sky and catch them again in mid-air. Designed to use a diesel generator, enormous hydraulic rams, and hydraulic accumulators to allow for rapid movements, BugJuggler will not only be impressively large, but exceptionally agile for its size.”

Before you start planning your next vacation around an opportunity to go see this machine in action, note that the people behind it are still working to put the funding together, and that there is not yet even a projected completion date, although work has begun on a smaller, single-arm prototype.
