September 2013
Popular Science;Sep2013, Vol. 283 Issue 3, p28
The article describes several variations from 175,000 generations of how robots of the future will walk around, as simulated by the computer program designed by researchers at Cornell University, including the galloper with long legs with bone, the incher with no legs and just soft tissue, and the knuckler which relies on its front limbs to walk.
