More Animal Robots

Berkeley researchers are paying attention to geckos. These guys use their tails as leverage if their front feet hit a slippery patch while climbing up something. It's neat to see. And watching a bunch of geckos falling a bunch of times is hilarious.

Boston Dynamics seems the place to be. They're responsible for Big Dog and this robot gecko thing. I hope they're also working on a robot giraffe.
