yeah of course boston dynamics has far better closed loop software and probably much more responsive actuators and all that, but they're pretty much studying animal-inspired configurations, wheras this company is exploring both exotic configurations and futuristic actuator types. this company is not "behind" boston dynamics, they're working on other stuff.

HOMELESS with a 'weird' robot-companion to carry a 100-lbs. backpack across People's Park (Berkeley) and up into the forest canyons, every night?!! if 'he' can jump up and down (and tell jokes!) along Telegraph Ave., maybe we could get some good spare change going?!

A little late on the robotics game, maybe that actuator can be used for prosthetics instead?

Garbage. These clowns only know about computers not about movement. They should spend some time studying bio-mechanics of living organisms.

if you seek "simple &stable" why you don't came up with "4 wheels" instead...

IMO the most impressive part about this is how stable the prototypes are when controlled using OPEN LOOP control methods. aka the robots have *zero* feedback sensors and error calculations yet are still that stable.

well stop complaining and just do it, look at boston dynamics, they like to kick there robot around, and not treat it like spoil child, make them tough.

Interesting leg movement. This one and the Google one have very different walking legs to 'conventional' robots I've seen here on youtube. And both Google's and MIT's are very different from each other too.

Those BEAR actuators could be really useful for suspension in vehicles. I would love to see this more widespread
Robert Palmore (2 months ago)
Notice that most of the guys were asian. Even with 200 to 300 points AGAINST the asian in the acceptance process they are STILL dominating technology. Universities should stop their racist acceptance policies and let everyone compete evenly on merit alone. Course that may make most of the students in university asian. That's OK with me so long as they are Americans.
Alexandre Jacquier (2 months ago)
Are they gonna do prosthesis with the actuator? It could be a good fit. This is also the more elegant alternative to "artificial muscles" and I totally bet on it. Robots were a bit underwhelming but let's see what they do next. I just wonder what it could achieve with the software and controls of let's say Atlas. Anyway we just have to wait and see
GOD (2 months ago)
You guys know that atlas costs a fuck load of money and this thing costs a fraction of it right? Plus it's light weight and the convertibility probably makes it way more versatile when it's fully developed.

herrerafour (3 months ago)
Pffft. Can't talk about how "stable" these are if you don't even try to kick it over or assault it with a hockey stick. Oh, wait. Unless they mean emotionally stable. Yeah, they do look like they're calmer than the Boston Dynamics robots, true.
Thomas Kamp (3 months ago)
That actuator is an step of evolution. I have never see something similar. Boston Dynamics will take months to steal it...lol
Boutlikhet Amine (3 months ago)
lesten there ! What would really help robotics research take off would be a standardized "NATO Alphabet" of descriptive words, to facilitate the rapid prototyping of cute clever robot names !!!!!!!!!!!! Old Chinese wisdom < when You can cheat, than cheat < why spending too much efforts on high complex Algorithmic when you can change the shape of the robot too get the same behavior on walk stability a nifty cheat/trick to get to the same matter and beyond Boston dynamics is like NASA and UCLA like Roskosmos they would make better Robots if they get money blown up their as too. like Boston dynamics or NASA!
GalaxyWolf 489 (3 months ago)
The BEAR actuator is a great idea, I am wondering what the difference in power consumption would be vs a traditional motor and could the actuator be scaled smaller.
AHAD•TM (3 months ago)
Me also prefer Boston's..why don't they use that gyro stuff n motorized wheel?then robot should be faster n more stable..

Dr. Zoidberg (3 months ago)
Even if these things come out & cost something like $10,000 when they're done, I can see them taking a lot of jobs. If I had a Pizza shop, for instance, $10,000 is only about 6 months of a full-time delivery boy's salary, so with self-driving cars implemented, this thing would pay for itself in half a year... except it wouldn't, because it could work all day every day, instead of 8 hour shifts for 5 days a week, so one of these would actually replace 2-3 delivery boys, making that kind of price-point an absolute no-brainer... even if it were as high as $50,000, it would still probably pay for itself in the range of a year & be nothing but profit from that point forward. Then, with just a few modifications, imagine how useful something like this would be in the back room of a store like Walmart... once they get working the way they're intended these things would do a way better job at stocking, picking, & binning product than tired, overworked, underpaid people do.

Why YOUR bipedal robots tends to fall so easily ? because you miss a degree of freedom ! The one situated in the pelvis area ! without it you'll be trying to make a brick walk straight !
Whorifice (3 months ago)
All the experts weighing in on how this is better than that and pointing out the obvious flaws in prototypes that are still being developed. Bi-pedal motion for machines while an admirable goal is just completely impractical when other configurations can demonstrate similar mobility without requiring nearly as much development, as the NABi team are well on their way to proving.
Whorifice 2 words, boston dynamics

The ROMELA TEAM must have to deserved better at this. Of course, the Boston Dynamics has great robot. But if U (I mean, peaple) have more positive optism about that, that MOTOR and ROBOT have great possibility to progress. Cheer up, ROMELA!

You guys with the BEAR + Boston Dynamics can seriously change robots for the better. If you changed this from a race to a team effort, that will make these robots so much more advanced! Just think about it, Boston Dynamics has robot stability and movement down, but you have the BEAR, and if you put those together, it would be great
steevee1945 (4 months ago)
Probably the main advantage of any of these machines is cost. They are simple and limited in their capabilities. Boston Dynamics is years ahead of these machines. And the flow of technology vs cost is to first develop the capabilities (hardware and software), whatever the cost, then engineer the costs out of the mechanism. Most of the cost is in the hardware. BD is farther up the curve.

It seems that this is a good independent unit. But they make humanoid robots so that they can use things designed for people. Doors, handle of the distribution board, cutters. Everything around us is meant for man. Sure fire truck more efficient than a man, but it did not multitask.
Good work
