New walking legs from Google

220px-WallaceandGromitinTheWrongTrousersA new, and as yet unnamed Google robot, has appeared in a new “sneak peek” video on YouTube (see below). The robot, which is about one meter tall, looks just like a walking pair of trousers . . . possibly inspired by Wallace and Grommit’s Wrong Trousers?

The video was recorded by an audience member at a New Economic Summit, NEST 2016, in Tokyo. The robot, which has been under development for some time, appears to be capable of carrying heavy loads, and has superb balance.
