Self-Assembling Cube Robots

Annnnd hello and welcome to this week in engineering brought to you by engineering.com. Galloping robot. Cambridge based Boston dynamics home of robots like the big dog pet men in cheetah has now created the wild cat and untethered gasoline powered quadruped robot that can gallop like a horse well not as fast as the tethered cheetah on the treadmill the wildcat is still fast enough to run down most humans and recovers gracefully from a fall the robot was created as part of DARPA's maximum mobility and manipulation or M. 3 program. To create robots that move rapidly in natural environments the research could help produce military robots that help soldiers by carrying heavy loads on difficult terrain. Self assembling cube robots MIT researcher John Roma Nisshin has created and blocks modular cube robots that moving to Sam ...
