G-Dog the robot puppy

G-Dog is a fantastic kit robot that you cannot buy in America.
Nine small RS304MD servos (new command TTL/ PWM system) are used for the G-Dog. The G-Dog is a high performance and reasonably-priced four-leg robot coming with Processing Unit and Motion Editor. The G-Dog comes with 9 command-type robot servos and each servo has its own command ID. More servos can be added using a hub and no complex wiring is required. Command-type Control Servo contains a built-in CPU. Since servos receive commands for speed and directions for each movement and operate according to the commands, there is less load on Processor.
Video demonstrates how fast and agile it is, compared to the sort of thing you can buy in the shops: G-Dog Servo Robot Dog by G-Robots [Hacked Gadgets]

    I forgot to mention, it says 69400 yen on the manufacturers page I looked at which would be £530GBP / $766USD (according to xe)… Excluding shipping, and assuming they would ship abroad..

    This is a pre-programmed demo..

    I envision a lot of win if you add a Gumstix or some other allinone/arm/x86 interface to bridge the control to wifi. After that you could program the stix/whatever over wifi on-the-fly :D
