HyQ: the automatic anti-disaster that looks like a dog.

In the features reminds BigDog, the terrible robot developed by BostonDynamics, and the noise produced by her step sounds similar. Different, though,it looks harmless and nationality, which is not American but Italian. He, in fact, is called HyQ (Hydraulic Quadruped) and is the brainchild of the Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa (IIT). Great meter, 70 kg in weight and made of aluminum, the robot is able to run, jump, push up on his hind legs, overcome obstacles and move at the speed of two meters per second, balancing and adjusting the movement also in case of rough terrain. In the future, and development has been completed (it will be also equipped with arms), will serve to support and assist us humans in dangerous situations and environments, like buildings about to collapse or explosion risk, and areas contaminated by radiation and chemicals.
