Four-Legged Robot Can Open Doors

Bounce, bounce, bounce

Just over a foot in length from hip to hip, the Ghost Minitaur from Ghsot Robotics is about the size of a typical cat, and at over 13 pounds, just a little heavier. It’s nimble, bouncing up stairs and traveling along level ground at around 4 mph. And while it may not have cat-like reflexes, its legs are smart sensors providing the feedback needed for all sorts of tricks.

Like opening doors.

And climbing fences.
