ICYMI: A creepy mechanical centaur, flying R2-D2 and more

A Creepy Mechanical Centaur, Flying R2-D2 and More

Today on In Case You Missed It: The nightmare-like genius of Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest inspired a Segway-like inventor to get creepy with personal transport. Comic-Con attendees will of course see R2-D2; but this time, he’ll also be flying overhead. And a new 3D-printed robot is inspired by a species of mussel to jump and bounce without breaking.

We are also bringing you some of the week’s most important stories in a quick headline round-up, in case you were too busy doing work things or having a life.

And our favorite bonus video just for readers of the site: Have you seen this incredible Guardian video of the retired Ronald McDonald? It’s maybe the most poignant video we’ve watched this week. Well that and the meditation for dealing with dickheads.

If you come across any interesting videos, we’d love to see them! Just tweet us with the #ICYMI hashtag @engadget or @mskerryd.
