Big Dog Robot

Boston Dynamics are a firm who specialise in advanced robotics. Their robots are built and designed to have remarkable behaviour and are extremely mobile, fast, and agile.

Boston Dynamics released new footage of it’s robot “Big Dog“. Big Dog is a rough-terrain robot that can walk, run, climb and carry heavy loads. The robots control systems help it remain balanced – even when the thing gets booted! Seeing this sort of progression in technology is truly inspiring – it demonstrates there are many more exciting possibilities for the future of robotics.

At first glance, you might not believe it to be true (looks like two guys running around in Ninja outfits), but it has to be seen to be believed!

For the super geeky details,check out this PDF with some overview information on Big Dog.

Speaking of dude’s running around in Ninja pants, the Big Dog (beta) parody is also a must watch!
