Robot videos

18th February, 2012

My post earlier about the hovering robots got me thinking about other robot videos I’ve seen recently. I thought I’d have a look to see what else is around online at the moment. Here are some highlights.

Big Dog

This video has been around for quite some time but its rather impressive. Highly tuned reactive control system in action, and very nicely done too.

Aldebaran Nao

Spotted these little guys’ new version announcement a few months back. Seem a bit gimmicky in the promo video but I wouldn’t say no to having a go with one. Would be interested in finding out how its programmed, unfortunately they’re very secretive with their APIs.


Honda’s got a bit gimmicky with Asimo too.
