1983 Sutherland 6 Legged Walker : Closeups and Demo in oily parking lot
More history from 1983!
Widely regarded as the “father of computer graphics”, Ivan Sutherland returned to CMU in the early 80s to build his walking machine.
Considered the first computer-controlled walking robot capable of carrying a human, the Sutherland Walker was about eight feet long; a gasoline engine drove the hydraulics controlling its six legs. As it walked, it maintained its balance by always keeping three feet on the ground. The Trojan Cockroach, along with Marc Raibert’s pioneering work in Carnegie Mellon’s Leg Lab, was featured in the January 1983 issue of Scientific American.
