Four-legged ROBOT HORSE can track fugitives across snow, ice and rocky terrain
It’s incredible artificial intelligence can easily rival other man-made machinery used in modern warfare thanks to its catalogue of features
Engineering students built an incredible robot ‘horse’ that wouldn’t look out of place in a futuristic war film.
The SCalf is a four-legged robot that can maneuver different tricky terrains, track people on sight on keep its balance when attacked with a forceful blow – all while carrying 120kg of people or equipment .
It was developed by a team of students from Shandong University in China.
And the amazing AI is being hailed as one of the most incredible pieces of kit to date, thanks to its handy features.
And its tracking feature could come in handy during covert operations outside of the battlefield.

It is one metre tall, weighs 120kg (18 stone) and is able to carry its own weight – around the same as a young, real horse.
The robot was developed by a crack team of students, all aged under 25 years old.
It has drawn comparisons already to Google-owned Boston Dynamic’s dog robot called Spot.
But if the AI were to be used in battle, its rivals might be a little more fierce – say, a combat robot designed to be used in attack and ambush missions as well as for surveillance, reconnaissance, decoy and intelligence gathering.
The RoBattle was unveiled this week as Israel’s answer to battle-ready artificial intelligence.
It is made by the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) who are set to show their new ‘toy’ off at the Eurosatory expo in Paris, next week.
According to IAI RoBattle is equipped with a modular “robotic kit” which can be changed and swapped in and out depending on the military operation.
Operators can equip RoBattle with different payloads, including manipulator arms, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance sensors and radars, and remotely controlled weapons. Source
I am so grateful that there will be NO need for weapons in heaven!
