Plustech's Walking Machine: stranger than fiction

"[Plustech's] walking machine adapts automatically to the forest floor. Moving on six articulated legs, the harvester advances forward and backward, sideways and diagonally. It can also turn in place and step over obstacles. Depending on the irregularity of the terrain, the operator can adjust both the ground clearance of the machine and heigh of each step.

Robots making their debut as futuristic machines in the movies are now starting to find their way into the real world as industrial machines."


[Plustech is now Timberjack, a division of John Deere]
