"Measuring 1.33 metres long and 90cm tall, and weighing just 130kg, it could be easy to underestimate this adorable robot dog.

"But the incredible robot, dubbed HyQReal, is much stronger than it looks, and has even been filmed towing a 3-tonne airplane for more than 10 metres!

"Researchers from Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia developed HyQReal to support humans in emergency situations."

I still find it bewildering that we are obsessed with making robots that look like animals (including humans).

If we started from scratch, maybe the boffins could come up with something more practical.
