Four-legged military robots became Christmas reindeer
American engineering company Boston Dynamics has decided to congratulate its subscribers on YouTube on the upcoming holiday.
To do this, the experts dressed their four-legged BigDog military robots in Christmas reindeer and forced them to pull the wagon with Mrs. Santa.
The development of Big Dog is funded by the Agency forUS Advanced Defense Research and Development (DARPA). The four-legged robot is used as an assistant for the soldier in carrying arms and equipment in places where normal transport can not pass.
On tests, robots are already demonstratingextraordinary quickness, move on rough terrain under a slope, are able to climb stairs and keep balance on slippery surfaces after a kick.
