Dennis Hong’s new robot ALPHRED 2 was featured in IEEE Spectrum article “RoMeLa’s Newest Robot Is a Curiously Symmetrical Dynamic Quadruped”.

Excerpt:

As it turns out, bipeds aren’t the only robots that can potentially benefit from a bit of a kinematic rethink. RoMeLa has redesigned quadrupedal robots too—rather than model them after a quadrupedal animal like a dog or a horse, RoMeLa’s ALPHRED robots use four legs arranged symmetrically around the body of the robot, allowing it to walk, run, hop, and jump, as well as manipulate and carry objects, karate chop through boards, and even roller skate on its butt. This robot can do it all.
