I found some more interesting walking robot projects by Boston Dynamics, the company developing the four-legged BigDog robot for DARPA that I talked about last time. First, there's the tiny version, LittleDog, also for DARPA, and used apparently for educational purposes at universities:
Still creepy, but now kind of cute-sized. And then there's the bipedal PETMAN--not being made for DARPA this time, but due to be delivered to the US Army's Product Director for Test Equipment, Strategy and Support ("PD-TESS") this year:
Pff big deal, I can run faster than that. >_>
Hm come to that when they do get one that runs faster than humans, that's when I'll really be worried (and that probably isn't too far off now, I suppose).
Over the weekend I drew a drawing not related to my comics, which you can check out on my deviantART.
But also over the weekend I did a drawing that *was* related to my comics, in fact it was my Sunday fairy tale comic, "The Princess and the Giant." And because I neglected to try to get you to go look at that series last week, I'm going to pester you twice about it this week (the next time on Friday, if I manage to stay awake this time...). So here's a teaser/link banner to the Princess page from two Sundays ago:
And if you're wondering why that looks so weird (aside from my drawing style I mean), well, you'll just have to click on it and read the comic! Muwahahahaaa!
