The world’s first two-legged walking robot was demonstrated at the National Design Engineering Show in Chicago earlier this month, reports Microbytes Daily: CURBi, for Clemson University Robot Biped, was shown by professor Yuan Zheng from the Clemson, South Carolina university, and the thing is programmed with just 900 lines of code and four databases on an NCR PC6 Personalike; as do humans, the robot takes a step, momentarily loses its centre of gravity, and then readjusts itself by planting its foot for the next step – and before anyone says so what?, the good professor points out that the thing might well be adapted so as to enable quadraplegics to walk again.
