BugJuggler: Project to build 70ft tall robot that juggles cars
BugJuggler will use a diesel engine to generate hydraulic pressure.

Hydraulic accumulators - essentially storage batteries for hydraulic fluid - will allow for the rapid movement required for the robot to juggle cars or other large, heavy objects.
