Mechanical Dog Robot
While researching robots I came across a company who has made a mechanical dog robot. They have made some amazing progress in the science of walking machines.
The company is called Boston Dynamics and they have developed a four legged mechanical dog called, surprise surprise, Big Dog.
Lifelike mechanical dog
As you can see in the video this mechanical dog robot appears almost lifelike in it's movements. At one point a guy tries to push the machine over and it recovers itself! Shots of it navigating an icy surface have to be seen to be believed!
