Energy Efficient Robot Moves Like A Seal

Because robots and AI are all the rage as we ramp up preparations for a self-imposed robot apocalypse, this is a video of a robot developed by researchers at Chicago’s DePaul University that mimics a seal’s flopping locomotion to move forward. The researchers, led by mechatronic engineer Dimuthu Kodippili Arachchige, believe the robot could be useful in search and rescue applications where a more traditional robot’s wheels or feet would be unable to enter a particular space. So that’s something. Something that looks like four sex toys joined at the base humping its way across the floor.
