The HyQ2Max Robot Can Stand Itself up in Rugged Terrain

Get ready for another milestone in robotics, meaning scientists have achieved yet another feat that will help robots hunt us down and dominate the planet. In this case, The Dynamic Systems Lab at the Italian Institute of Technology has created the HyQ2Max, a powerful robot that can lift itself up onto its four legs, even if it falls.

That means that it is good at getting up again after you knock it down, so that it can continue chasing you until you are dead. Just reading between the lines. Its design was inspired by quadruped animals, like how goats are able to navigate rough terrain for instance.

So there you go. Even if you knock them down, now they can get back up. Luckily, it will be the next generation that has to run from these mechanical beasts, so I won’t have to worry about being chased by one. I hope.
