Someone finally gave a robot a decent pair of shoes
Getting robots to walk like humans is a tricky (and reliably amusing) exercise. Mimicking the product of hundreds of thousands of years of evolution using servos instead of muscles usually leads to robots that stumble, bumble, and fall flat on their shiny metal asses. We're getting better at it though, and a team of engineers from the Georgia Institute of Technology have come up with a handy method of improving their robot's ability to stride: a pair of decent shoes.
