Irrefutable Proof that Dinosaurs Once Ruled the World
114th day of 2008


Need I say more?

In other news, Boston Dynamics, the leading provider of human simulation software, tools, and solutions, has developed the most advanced quadruped robot on Earth, codenamed BigDog. As the name suggests, it's the size of a large dog, measuring 1 meter long, 0.7 meters tall, and 75 kg weight. In separate trials, BigDog runs at 4 mph, climbs slopes up to 35 degrees, walks across rubble, and carries a 340 lb load. Needless to say, this advanced robot is both to be awed (and eventually feared as it learns to think for itself). Videos of BigDog have been released on youtube, and they truly are impressive. Observe:



The engineering team has certainly made massive improvements since the initial release of BigDog Beta. Observe and compare:

The resemblance to a t-rex is uncanny.

I challenge you to find a word that rhymes with "daffodils"! :P

That robot is totally insane. I think the droid wars are about to come. But it still isn't as awesome as the human version.
