I am proud to say that in 1996 I was part of a NATO-led multinational force in Bosnia and Herzegovina tasked with demining and bomb disposal. As a combat engineer with the Implementation Force (IFOR), our job was both extremely exhilarating and absolutely frightening. If you have seen any of the Hurt Locker movies, you […]

When we first saw Robotis release their new line of professional (and large) Dynamixel Pro servo motors, we knew it would not be long until they were used to create larger humanoids. So, not long after their release, “THOR” was revealed; Robotis’ child-sized humanoid entry into the DARPA humanoid challenge. The latest iteration of this […]

Boston dynamics unveiled the “WildCat”; their latest robotic creation. The aptly named robot a can gallop at 16 mph untethered and can maneuver much like its predecessors “BigDog” and “AlphaDog”. You can see its impressive performance in the video below. Did you notice how the operators quickly run from the robot as soon as they […]

The term “Drone” is becoming more and more popular in everyday conversations due largely to its increased use in militaries around the world. Hobbyists have also jumped on board with the focus being on multi-rotor aircraft which are able to hover in place and be used for surveillance, but never really to add weapons. There […]

As seen in the video below, the robot was given some clothes and equipment to test… and it did just that. It is very interesting to see the robot walk and move effortlessly. What do you think of this kind of […]

The Trackbot by Inspectorbots is a powerful surveillance robot capable of navigating very rough terrain riddled with debris. Its small size makes it particularly suitable for crawling into small tunnels, pipes, and generally inaccessible places for humans. Thanks to its camera and headlights, the human operator can see what the robot sees. The video below demonstrates the robots’ capabilities. If you already wanted […]

Boston Dynamics’ “Cheetah” robot just broke its own speed record. This in and of  itself is quite an achievement, considering it was already the fastest legged robot in existence, but it also broke Usain Bolt’s record (100m and 200m sprinting world champion)! The cheetah robot was able to achieve 45.5 km/hr, smashing Usain ‘s record of 44.7 km/h. […]

PETMAN has to be the most physically capable humanoid robot in terms of flexibility, range of motion and robustness. It has been developed by Boston Dynamics, the same people who created BigDog, and is intended to tryout military equipment. Check out this video in order to see the robot, walk, move and get kicked. Kicking […]
