ETH Zurich Demos Robotic Dog Named Anymal

(CNET) The Robotic Systems Lab at the ETH Zurich university in Switzerland recently posted a progress update on Anymal, its robotic dog. The footage shows Anymal using an articulated arm to turn a handle, push a door open and walk through.
Robotic Systems Lab is using the video to demonstrate a system called ALMA, which stands for Articulated Locomotion and Manipulation. Anybotics, a spinoff from the Robotic Systems Lab, is working to commercialize Anymal for use in industrial inspections, surveying and mapping, surveillance, first-response situations, and even entertainment. I’m thinking a robot petting zoo could do well.
