Meet G-Dog, Japan's newest robotic dog

Japanese robot maker HPI will start selling a four-legged robotic dog, the so-called G-Dog (what a name), later this month.

The robo dog, which is powered by a 7.2V nickel metal hydride battery, features a total of nine servomotors and is largely made of aluminium. It’s sized at 375×135×190mm and weighs 570g.
Users will be able to control the G-Dog wirelessly via a Playstation-like joypad. The robot is able to sit up and beg, crawl and roll over to its side.

HPI is present (through distributors) in large parts of Oceania and Asia so this robot might find its way outside Japan for a change.
