Dog Flying Through Sky

Dog Flying Through Sky

So we’re gonna talk seriously about gun control for a while and then move on again. Right?

A video on Flexible Muscle-Based Locomotion for Bipedal Creatures presents a fascinating topic, but the simulation above made me laugh.


  We present a muscle-based control method for simulated bipeds in which both the muscle routing and control parameters are optimized. This yields a generic locomotion control method that supports a variety of bipedal creatures. All actuation forces are the result of 3D simulated muscles, and a model of neural delay is included for all feedback paths.


And also, watching simulated bipeds falling down is funny. Science!
