    Boston Dynamics Robotic Big Dog

    Just sharing these amazing videos

    The Most Advanced Quadruped Robot on Earth
    BigDog is the alpha male of the Boston Dynamics family of robots. It is a quadruped robot that walks, runs, and climbs on rough terrain and carries heavy loads. BigDog is powered by a gasoline engine that drives a hydraulic actuation system. BigDog's legs are articulated like an animal's, and have compliant elements that absorb shock and recycle energy from one step to the next. BigDog is the size of a large dog or small mule, measuring 1 meter long, 0.7 meters tall and 75 kg weight.



    The Rugged Robot that Devours Rough Terrain
    RHex is a man-portable robot with extraordinary rough terrain mobility. RHex climbs over rock fields, mud, sand, vegetation, railroad tracks, telephone poles and up steep slopes and stairways. RHex has a sealed body, making it fully operational in wet weather, in muddy and swampy conditions, and it can swim on the surface or dive underwater. RHex's remarkable terrain capabilities have been validated in independent testing at US Government Labs.

    RHex is controlled remotely from an operator control unit at distances up to 600 meters. A video uplink provides front and rear views from RHex's onboard cameras. RHex also uplinks navigational data from onboard compass and GPS and from payload sensors. A downlink allows the operator to control mobility and to operate mission payloads.

    Dude that's fuckin weird! It's almost scary when it starts stumbling, like on the ice.

    When it's in mid-stumble it looks a real creature trying to regain its footing, but as soon as it comes out of the stumble it is immediately in walk mode like nothing happened. The robot's movements when regaining its balance are so impeccably precise that it looks unnatural but normal at the same time.
