Boston Dynamics Petman!

Friday, November 4th, 2011


My inner geek in robotics and knowledge in the complexities that come along in making a 2 footed robot walk naturally yet alone survive a big shove to the side while maintaining balance has just been remedied by Boston Dynamics demo video of Petman! Watch it here and perhaps be amazed as I was. This is hard stuff, next come the petdog that will run around chasing after a ball and withstand cars and all obstacles only to bring you back your ball with a wagging tail (for balance) and a smile (programmed in).

Evolution of Games – Making Of

Monday, August 15th, 2011


awesome!
“This making of the “Evolution of Games” is an impressive, coordinated and directed masterpiece, and proof that not everything is done inside of a computer.
It’s fun to see the piece come to life while watching the finished piece in the same window. Hooray for handiwork. ”
