THE FIRST REAL
ROBOT RAPTOR ?

In my search for all robots big or small, I happened across an article in the archives from 2001.
The boys over at MIT had been working on a robot Troodon dinosaur from the Cretaceous period "Troody".
Weighing in at around 10 pound she has16 joints and 36 sensors. The robot also has a vestibular system , an inner ear that it uses for balancing, and an onboard computer that automatically runs a walking control algorithm.
check out the details that are left on their sire, the video is gone from the link but hey its still really cool to see another bibep walking raptor style bot that isnt just a toy....
This is what we want.....more feedback and control.
Sean.
