DailyDirt: More Robots Inspired By Animals

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Previously, we saw some bio-inspired robots that could fly around. But walking can be even more challenging if the terrain is rough enough. Here are a few more robots that have been designed to run around on the ground. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Boston Dynamics

    Want a grand tour through Uncanny Valley? Go look up some YouTube videos of Boston Dynamics’ “Big Dog” robot. Watching the sequence where the guy gives it a kick and it immediately throws its legs out to keep balance just sends chills down my spine.
