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 […]

We covered previously the announcement of the 2013 DARPA Robotic Challenge. Today, DARPA released two very interesting videos: one presenting Atlas, the official humanoid platform for the challenge developed by Boston Dynamics, and another introducing the other contestants in the challenge (Chimp, HUBO, Robosimian, Valkyrie, SCHAFT, and THOR). Without further ado, meet Atlas, a ridiculously advanced and […]

PETMAN, the biped humanoid from Boston Dynamics, recently got to do its job: to test military clothing and equipment. 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 challenge officially started today, […]

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 […]

Boston Dynamics’ LittleDog has made progress recently. Not only was this little robotic critter able to move alone over difficult terrain, but now it does so with greater confidence: It jumps, climbs stairs, and reacts to real-time obstacles. “Little Dog” means “petit chien” in French, and it is impressive to watch. It is equipped with […]
