Boston Dynamics’ Spot Robot Plays Dead

Boston Dynamics’ Spot Robot Plays Dead
We’ve seen Boston Dynamics’ animal-inspired robots perform some impressive tasks over the years, from stacking boxes, to doing backflips, to performing sick dance moves, to pulling an airplane. But you can’t expect robot perfection 100% of the time, can you?

MIT Mini Cheetah Robot Can Do Backflips

MIT Mini Cheetah Robot Can Do Backflips
Robots. Right now we make them do all kinds of crazy stuff and we point and say “cool” or we laugh, but just remember that laughter is going to turn to screaming in our near future.

Boston Dynamics’ SpotMini Robot Wants to Uptown Funk You Up

Boston Dynamics’ SpotMini Robot Wants to Uptown Funk You Up
Boston Dynamics continues to crank out creepy robots of questionable value to humanity. We’ve seen its SpotMini robot navigate around a warehouse before, looking for human souls to consume and heads to wear. Now the quadruped is doing something even more scary – dancing to Uptown Funk.

Ghost Robotics Minitaur Quadruped Can Open Doors to Snatch your Soul

Ghost Robotics Minitaur Quadruped Can Open Doors to Snatch your Soul
Well folks, we are yet one step closer to creating a real life Hector robot that will come and rip off your head and wear it while chasing your girlfriend around the building. The Ghost Robotics‘ Minitaur robot reminds me of a cross between a really weird, really excited cat, and that BigDog robot.

This Pneumatic Robot Dog Runs Like Its on Crank

This Pneumatic Robot Dog Runs Like Its on Crank
What is it about scientists creating terrifying robot dogs? Meet the latest mechanical mutt, who goes by the name PneuHound. It is a pneumatic-powered quadruped being developed at Osaka University‘s Adaptive Robotics Laboratory by Koh Hosoda and his team.

The HyQ2Max Robot Can Stand Itself up in Rugged Terrain

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.

Boston Dynamics WildCat Robot Runs Free: Cheetah Unchained

Boston Dynamics WildCat Robot Runs Free: Cheetah Unchained
Boston Dynamics’ Cheetah robot impressed people all over the world when it proved that it can outrun even the fastest of our species. But some of you may have been thinking, what’s to be afraid of?

Germans Developing Robot Ape: Primautomaton

Germans Developing Robot Ape: Primautomaton
This robot ape from the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) could be considered a cross between a humanoid and a quadruped. Most of the time it moves around on four limbs, but it can stand up on its hind legs too.

Robot Teaches Itself to Walk, Just Not Very Well

Robot Teaches Itself to Walk, Just Not Very Well
I recently showed you a video in which a Gundam mech taught itself to walk using some sort of “genetic algorithm”. Around the same time, it turns out engineers have been giving real robots the tools they need to walk on their own.

Alpha Dog Robot Going to Boot Camp

Alpha Dog Robot Going to Boot Camp
Boston Dynamics‘ LS3 Alpha Dog robot was designed to help American soldiers as a way to carry almost 400 pounds of gear on difficult terrain in the field. Now Alpha Dog is finally ready to enter basic training.

HyQ Quadruped Robot Kicks, Trots and Rears Up

HyQ Quadruped Robot Kicks, Trots and Rears Up
If they create anymore quadruped robots, we are going to need to build some robotic zoos to house them. We have BigDog, AlphaDog and now HyQ. HyQ was developed at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), in Genoa.

Boston Dynamics BigDog Robot: Will it Eat PIGORASS for Lunch?

Boston Dynamics BigDog Robot: Will it Eat PIGORASS for Lunch?
A reader pointed out that the PIGORASS four-legged robot I mentioned yesterday was somewhat flimsy (I don’t agree) compared to this more sturdy offering from Boston Dynamics. They call it the BigDog and it will most probably eat your real dog for lunch (it can be weaponized).

PIGORASS 4-Legged Robot Jumps and Gallops on Its Own

PIGORASS 4-Legged Robot Jumps and Gallops on Its Own
Walking is hard enough for robots, but check out this ‘bot that can do so on four legs. He might become your future dog, if all goes according to plan for its Japanese inventors.

1960s Walking Truck: The First AT-AT?

1960s Walking Truck: The First AT-AT?
I always wondered how practical a giant manned walking robot like the AT-ATs in The Empire Strikes Back would really be. Well a long, long time ago, at a General Electric factory far, far away, it turns out an actual quadruped manned robot was in development.

Rise V3 Pole Climbing Robot Scales Vertical Surfaces With Tiny, Sharp Claws – Just Like My Cat Climbs My Leg

Rise V3 Pole Climbing Robot Scales Vertical Surfaces With Tiny, Sharp Claws – Just Like My Cat Climbs My Leg
This amazing bit of mechanical technology not only can run on the ground, it can ascend difficult to scale surfaces like trees and telephone poles. Designed by Boston Dynamics, working with researchers from The University of Pennsylvania’s Kod*lab, the RiSE V3 robot can work its way up poles without cracking so much as a sweat.
