A super-strong robotic 'dog' will be soon available to the public, with Chinese firm 'Unitree' saying it was ready release the hound on the market for $25,000 (€21,300), footage filmed in Hangzhou reveals, Wednesday.

The robotic four-legged friend, called Laikago, can assimilate canine-like movements, walk on a variety of terrain and drag heavy objects. There won't be any fur to clean off your sofa either!

"We have applied the latest technology to Laikago, such as organisation, control and dynamics," said the creator of the robot and CEO of 'Unitree', Wang Xingxing.

The CEO describes Laikago as a “scientific toy" for the moment but added that the firm “will try to explore the field of practical appliance, such as security."

The RoboPup weighs 22kg (49lbs) and is controlled by mathematic equations with AI programming languages used as a supplement.

Un “perro-robótico” muy preparado estará pronto disponible para el público, al asegurar la empresa china 'Unitree' que estará lista para lanzar el sabueso en el mercado por 25,000 $ (21,300 €). En estas imágenes vemos las habilidades de este sorprendente trabajo de ingeniería.

El amigo robótico de cuatro patas, llamado Laikago, puede realizar movimientos similares a los de un perro, caminar sobre una gran variedad de terrenos y arrastrar objetos pesados. ¡Y además, no tendrás que limpiar pelos del sofá!

""Hemos aplicado las últimas tecnologías en Laikago, en aspectos como su organización, control, dinámica”, dijo Wang Xingxing, creador del robot y CEO de 'Unitree'.

El CEO describe a Laikago como un "juguete científico", pero agregó que la firma "tratará de explorar el campo de su aplicación práctica, como en seguridad".

Este robot pesa 22 kg y está controlado por ecuaciones matemáticas, con lenguajes de programación IA que se utilizan como complemento.
