The Boston Dynamics Robotics Lab was originally founded in 1992 and worked closely with MIT. Today, the company is booming. Some of the robots the lab has created include BigDog, a robot the size of a large dog that can carry up to 340 lbs., CHEETAH, the fastest legged robot in the world that can travel over 29 mph, and RiSE, a robot that can climb vertical surfaces such as trees and walls with ease.
The trip to the Boston Dynamics Robotics Lab was surely a once in a lifetime experience for all in the Sturgis ROVers club. Many thanks to Ms. Strong and Mr. Mckay for providing the opportunity to see some of the best engineers in the world at work!
