The development of robotic technology is now growing rapidly. Having previously existing robots that can jump, now Swiss researcher has created a robot that is capable of running. The robot was given the name Catbot .
This robot is created in a laboratory belonging to the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne. This robot also has a cat-like body structure with four legs. The researchers also deliberately designed the robot legs by taking a model from a domestic cat.
With the robot, the researchers hope to provide technological advances in biomechanics. Especially on foot design that aims to create a robot that can move more quickly. In the end, they also hope that the design of this robot can be used for rescue or exploration missions.
This robot is also claimed as the fastest robot in its class weighing less than 30 kilograms. In the tests conducted, the robot has the ability to move almost 7 times the size of his body in one second. Of course the speed is still far from the speed of a cat. But it became a separate achievement for the world of technology.

We are not only interested in acquiring other companies. They also turned out to have just bought a sophisticated robot that can imitate human movement. Even the robot can also jig-style Gangnam Style.
Two Hubo robot named was purchased by Google for $ 40 million USD. This robot is also able to mimic human movements using a motion detection camera. There are two robotic units purchased by Google. Google spent a total funding of 80 million USD for the second robot.
Two Hubo robot that has a high flexibility. The robot even has a hand that can mimic the movement of the rope lasso on the dance Gangnam Style.
