Bipedal robots are those that walk using two legs like humans do. The problem is that this isn’t always the fastest way to travel. That’s why humans developed wheeled transports like cars, bikes, roller skates, and even so-called “hoverboards.”
Meet Chicken-Walker 2.0 everyone. This past Halloween, the weird looking Cassie humanoid-legged robot donned a Star Wars AT-ST costume made by members of its build team at Oregon State University’s Dynamic Robotics Lab. So basically these engineers are Imperials, now creating the Empire’s latest toys.
Actually, what you are about to watch is a video from Agility Robotics of Cassie, a two-legged, ostrich-inspired robot and one of Boston Dynamics’ Spot quadruped robots. They are having a creepy little playdate.
Awww. Isn’t that adorable?
