BigDog in Thailand
« on: April 19, 2009, 12:55:16 PM »
BigDog is walking in wet sand and on a beach, pretty impressive! Last November I was horseriding on a beach in Thailand and that darn horse was definitely having trouble walking . . .

You know as amazing as the BigDog is to watch work it really has no grace I guess you would call it. Every move it makes just screams I am a mechanical device. I think it might have something to do with the way the front legs move. The back legs move in a more natural manor but the inverted joint of the front legs kinda gives me the creeps while watching it move :)
