BigDog, Our New Robotic Mule Overlord, Is Almost Ready to Take Over Earth [Video]

That’s it guys, first a block of concrete, next, a human body. We’re doomed, DOOMED! I tell you!

BigDog handles heavy objects. The goal is to use the strength of the legs and torso to help power motions of the arm. This sort of dynamic, whole-body approach to manipulation is used routinely by human athletes and will enhance the performance of advanced robots. Boston Dynamics is developing the control and actuation techniques needed for dynamic manipulation with funding from the Army Research Laboratory’s RCTA program.
