BigDog four-legged robot now has throwing arm

4 posts in this topic

A four-legged robot called BigDog now sports an arm powerful enough to lift and throw breeze blocks.

Made by US robotics company Boston Dynamics, the machine is backed by the Pentagon.

BigDog was designed primarily for military use, and the arm could help soldiers pick up and carry heavy loads.

But one robotics expert said the technology's potential was "enormous" for use in other areas, such as search and rescue.

Awesome. They just need to teach it to play fetch with itself now.

That was a little creepy. The only thing that kept me watching it was that I knew that a human was driving it.
