DailyDirt: Four-Legged Robot Friends

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

We've pointed out some cool bipedal robots before, but robots that get around without wheels are endlessly fascinating, and apparently, the internet loves cats and so do robot makers. It might not be as fun to name a quadruped robot after a goat or a large farm animal, so big cats seem to be the way to go when describing four-legged bots. Here are just a few examples of cat-like robots that aren't as cute as the real thing. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.
