More Biology in Robotics

The article is somewhat sparse on the details, but it does have a few neat videos of a new type of walking robot. The unique and cleaver thing about this one? It uses only a modicum of sensors which detect when the legs are touching the ground and when a leg has moved to a particular position, which mimics in many ways the more simplistic approach used in humans to maintain gait, where there isn’t a huge amount of complicated processing going on to maintain motion.
