Thread: BigDog - Not cute and not available from Toys'R'Us

  1. #1

    Default BigDog - Not cute and not available from Toys'R'Us

    Apologies if this is old hat, but I was amazed and slightly disturbed by this thing. It moves just a little *too* naturally. (Pity about the noise it makes.)

    Boston Dynamics: The Leader in Lifelike Human Simulation

    Also a pity it takes defense funding to do it too.

    I want one. (I think.)

    Edit: Dammit, it _is_ old hat: http://www.adisc.org/forum/off-topic...t-invason.html (I originally read it as 'BioDog' and forgot to search after correcting it. Well for anyone that hasn't seen it... here it is again.

    The answer is simple - stick a V8 in it and scale as appropriate.

    Actually, I think something with the agility of a (slightly drunken) dog and the power of a V8 would have to be encroaching on the dinosaur world. Every kid's dream; robot dinosaurs... kewl...

    That thing scares me. Kill it. It's like a four legged robot tarantula.... that buzzes.
