Meet Little Dog - Boston Dynamics amazing small walking robot

Boston Dynamics are the creators of Big Dog, a walking dog sized robot, hare is their newest creation, Little Dog, which appears to be a rat sized walking robot. It seems if it walks you get an affinity for it. Its cute yet being black is somewhat malevolent.

LittleDog has four legs, each powered by three electric motors. The legs have a large range of motion. The robot is strong enough for climbing and dynamic locomotion gaits. The onboard PC-level computer does sensing, actuator control and communications.

LittleDog's sensors measure joint angles, motor currents, body orientation and foot/ground contact. Control programs access the robot through the Boston Dynamics Robot API.

Onboard lithium polymer batteries allow for 30 minutes of continuous operation without recharging. Wireless communications and data logging support remote operation and data analysis.

LittleDog development is funded by the DARPA Information Processing Technology Office.
