Boston Dynamics, better known for the hulking robot brute known as ATLAS, has just revealed a considerably smaller creation that looks like a cross between a golden retriever and a baby giraffe. But forget about it just replacing your family pet: SpotMini looks like it can replace your housecleaner too.
That's some serious balancing. Engineers at Boston Dynamics are making progress with "Atlas", the 6-foot, 330-pound humanoid robot. Still a long way to go from this to fast robot ninjas, but it's already intimidating as it tries to do the famous "Crane Kick" (or at least the stance) from Karate Kid.
Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, one of the most visually unique RPGs for the PS2, is out today on the Playstation 3. You can pick it up here on the Playstation Network Store.
It looks more organic than robotic.
It's been a well-fought discussion: Which game was the hand's down best title of 2009. But all good fights have to end, hopefully with a clear winner.
