chip updates: what inspired legged robot? [updates]
So fun fact I want to remember. What actually inspired the legged robot craze for me? Turns out it wasn't MIT Cheetah 3 surprisingly, that wasn't the robot that really made me want to build legged robots some day.
This is robosimian, the NASA JPL robot that competed in the DARPA robotics challenge from 2012-2015. Robosimian is a 4-legged robot, if you can really call those things legs, that could fold up and drive around on two wheels in the back when the terrain was appropriate.
