Silly and Serious

The first example is ridiculously silly yet it is interactive with the user. The box responds directly to the user’s action.

The second example is Boston Dynamics’ Big Dog. Big Dog is a walking robot designed by Boston Dynamics Lab for the military. It is intended to closely assist the troops in the field by carrying battle gear. The robot has an incredible motion system for navigating cross-country terrain. Especially freaky is Big Dog’s ability to recover if it slips or is pushed over (0:35 and 1:28)
