Cassie the Chicken Walker

Looks finger licking good to me.

"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."

  • I remember reading an article many years ago (in Discover magazine, IIRC) about what the human body would look like if truly intelligent design had come to bear instead of evolution. The hip and knee structures it posited were nearly identical to those of the chicken walker. This all goes to show that mimicking anthropomorphic structures (i.e. making humanoid robots) is not always the best approach.
