The technology that makes use of robots to process information and does stuff like humans is known as Robotics. There are many creative companies around the world that are working hard to make robots that can sense and work like humans. Alphabet, the parent company of Google, owns a similar robotic company, Boston Dynamics.
Boston Dynamics was acquired by Google in 2013 which is then run by Andy Rubin (co-inventor of Android). Now, as per a news published in Recode, Japan’s SoftBank is going to buy Boston Dynamics and Google’s another robotic company Schaft.
Boston Dynamic has developed a quadruped robot, WildCat, which is assumed to be the word’s fastest robot that runs at a speed of 32 kilometers per hour. It weighs 154 kgs with a height of 1.17 meters.
WildCat has a terrain scanning laser, whereas, it’s powered by Methanol Engine and hydraulic actions. It’s really amazing to see how robotics is slowly taken over our lives.
