The End Nears: A New Walking Robot Inspired By Ostriches

June 30, 2017

This is a video demonstration and discussion about Cassie, a new bipedal robot inspired by ostriches. The robot was designed and built by students and faculty at Oregon State University's College of Engineering, with the help of Agility Robotics. In case you couldn't tell, it's super creepy to just see a pair of robotic legs walking around. Could you not have given it the rest of a body? "Some boobs at least." Exactl-- wait, what? Who are you and what are you doing here? "I just--" This is a private party you need to leave. "But--" No buts, Mr. Metaltits Lover, you need to go.

Keep going for the video while I set off some fireworks in the office to get this 4th of July party started.

Thanks to Liam, who agrees the only legged robots that should be legal should have the gait and speed of a turtle. And not Ninja Turtles either.
