Robot Rumors: The RS Troodasaur robot from WowWee
The Troodon was a small carnivorous dinosaur from the Cretaceous era. The robotics geniuses at the MIT LegLab decided to try to build a robot to model it’s walking behavior using fossil records and 3D reconstructive technologies as a basis for their work. The result was Troody and on that web page you can see pictures and videos of their work.
WowWee definitely has an affection for robot dinosaurs (don’t we all?). They started with the animatronic T-Rex, then came the best selling Roboraptor, and now the agile ferocious Roboreptile is invading millions of homes worldwide.
Perhaps the RS Troodasaur will be an amazingly gifted walker that will put even the nimble Roboreptile to shame. That would be amazing and would be something truly wonderful to look forward to.
