As it turns out, this rather serious Italian robot isn’t shaped like a supercar or a Vespa. It’s a shiny silver quadruped that can kick you in the shin if you make any pasta or romance jokes.

Walk Like I Got Four Legs
The HyQ is shaped a lot like Boston Dynamics’ LS3/Big Dog quadruped projects. There are certainly some differences (hydraulics, stated potential mission, strength, responsiveness, power source, etc.), but at the end of the day an earth-based quadruped can only look/behave in limited number of ways.

Interesting video (yet not yet creepy, like some other robots I could mention) after the jump.
