WATERS: The ending I should've fought harder for is where Martha Dumptruck pulls out a knife, stabs Veronica, and says, "Fuck you, Heather." And Veronica's on the ground laughing, with a knife in her stomach, saying, "My name's not Heather. My name's not Heather." [...]
LEHMANN: There was a long time in which Winona would say she wanted to do a sequel. It just didn't seem to lend itself to a sequel.
WATERS: I did come up with this crazy, cockamamy Heathers 2 where Veronica becomes a page for a senator named Heather, played by Meryl Streep. The ending is her assassinating the president and getting away with it -- and it's a good thing. [...]
I told Winona the idea without any more elaboration than I'm giving you, and a year later I hear from her: "So I talked to Meryl. She's in!" I'm like, "What?!"
Energy-efficient jump kinematics based on a natural model:
On the artificial kangaroo, Festo intelligently combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology to produce a highly dynamic system. The stable jump kinematics plus the precise control technology ensure stability when jumping and landing. The consistent lightweight construction facilitates the unique jumping behaviour. The system is controlled by gestures.
Festo paid particular attention to the mobile energy supply on the artificial kangaroo. For this purpose, the team even developed two different concepts -- one with an integrated compressor and one with a mobile high-pressure storage device.
