New Scientist has the scoop on a state-of-the-art walking robot that navigates uneven terrain, slopes, and significant kicks.
The movie has to be seen to be believed. The robot is called BigDog and it looks like a CGI special effect. But don’t let the film industry desensitize you from the accomplishment here. The robotics engineering required to do this on real terrain is extraordinary. The engineers over at Boston Dynamics really deserve kudos for this.
