I, for one, welcome our new raptor-bot overlords

Troody, a robotic troodon. It squeaks like a Terminator when it walks! MPEGs:

    A robotic pet raptor would be so much cooler than an Aibo... "Rappy: go fetch the nice robopuppy. No, you can't eat it, you're both robots..."

    More like it squeaks like it has squeaky shoes when it walks. hehe.

    Damn impressive...

    Ok that's pretty cool! Love the music with it. It's also pretty creepy to think of that thing with a bit of dermplast rapped around it.

    And yes it does squeak like Terminator. :o)

      And they have a company to build more dino-robots! Good luck to them.

      The music in the second video is 'Halcyon + On + On' by Orbital, one of my favorites. : )

    Why a put a raptor's head on this?

    Because you wouldn't link to a giant robotic chicken.

  6. Look at the way it walks, though -- it looks like it's in terrible pain. Poor giant carnivorous robot!
