Someone sent me these amazing videos of this robot build by Boston Dynamics under a DARPA research grant. Truly amazing.
Here it is in its current form. You can see that it’s pretty sophisticated.
But, it hasn’t always been that way. Here is version 1. You can see they’ve come a very long way.
Long story short, keep working hard at something and you can go from ‘stupid robot’ to ‘that thing kicks ass.’
