Reviewing the video, I think

Reviewing the video, I think the upper "tendon" is an elastic tube.  Which I have stated before, that "springs" are very "under-utilized".  Motors, gears, servos, linkages are much too brittle.  Use intrinsic shock absorbing, energy batteries of springs !  - the lower "tendon" is a metal shaft which varies foot attack angle.

Aluminium Tube.

Hello Grog,

I think you will find that tube is Aluminum and not flexible, used to stabalise the bottom section, however that black bit the tube is attached to at the bottom, looks like stiff rubber to me, and that would give the springiness that would be needed.

There is a better view of it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teCBAppDdL8

Your Right Ray - its a fixed

Your Right Ray - its a fixed aluminum rod.

... rubber ? .. not sure of the material but I would hope that "rest" position would give you a "springy" 0 energy platform.  Dunno, but really excited about west coast boston dynamics :D

 

Heh, I think how cool InMoov would be walking around with ostrich legs :))

Maybe we should request one, and have mrl do the pre-terrain image processing :D
