Cassie the bipedal robot first to complete 5km jog

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Four years is a long time in robotics, especially so for a bipedal robot developed at Oregon State University (OSU) named Cassie. Dreamt up as an agile machine to carry packages from delivery vans to doorsteps, Cassie has recently developed an ability to run, something its developers have now shown off by having it complete what they say is the first 5-km (3.1-mi) jog by a bipedal robot.

As fascinating as the technology is it still looks creepy.

If they didn't waste so much time trying to make robots look humanoid(ish), we would all have personal robot butlers by now.

How cool would it be if they were armed and acted as security guards! Imagine having a few patrolling a housing estate- no arguing, if you didn't have aright to be there, goodbye!

Not bad at all! When I was a kid folks thought humanoid robots where scifi...now we are getting closer to the things truly existing.

Infantile adults making expensive silly useless toys.  For what purpose?

I think that once it stops looking creepy, it will have become dangerous to human beings.  The reason "Big Dog"  isn't still in use by the military is that it was just too loud to be effective in the field.  Imagine swarms of insect-sized drones with C-4 incorporated that track your cell phone... yep...
