That is fricken amazing. It's movements are very close to a dogs. The complexity of that system boggles my mind. :eek:

Yeah, pretty cool for sure. Somebody earned their paycheck on that job. That thing is uber cool.

I want one just to put a leash on, so I could take it for walks up and down the street to freak out the neighbors. I'd glue fake fur all over the thing to make it look more realistic.

Then I'd occasionally kick it like the guy in the video and laugh manically, and dare them to call the SPCA and PETA. Then I'd kick it again....:lol:

that's a cool robot.

But I'm not sure about being quadraped. Sounds really, really bad.
