KITECH & POSTECH Developing Korean Quadrupeds

POSTECH-quad KITECH-quad

Looks like Boston Dynamics’ BigDog may have some competition courtesy of these two quadruped robots from South Korea. Both KITECH and POSTECH have quadruped robots in development for the South Korean defense industry, but from the looks of things they have a ways to go before they’ll be able to catch up to BigDog. POSTECH’s pQ1 (PIRO Quadruped Version 1), the smaller one, is only 55cm (21″) tall. KITECH’s larger quadruped seems a bit better, but the robot’s balance doesn’t look anywhere near good as that of BigDog.
