Most people have heard of AIBO from Sony. You know, that weird little robotic dog that they’re trying to use as a platform for humanoid robots that can walk? Who knew that in my own backyard, the fine folks at uMich have created their own walking robot that even compensates for its balance when it gets pushed or knocked around. The weird thing is that it doesn’t have feet. It looks like it has peglegs. The video of a guy shoving it from behind is pretty cool.
