HPI G-Dog Servo Robot by G-Robots

This is not Aibo, the first robo-dog released by Sony. This is HPI G-Dog Robot, tiny dog robot kit by G-Robots with measures 15 x 5.3 x 7.5 inches, that's looks like it will be lots of fun. I have no idea how they got the servo motors to move so fast! Have a look at the first video that was shot by Robot Watch and notice how quickly the servos move to certain positions. The kits looks like it is easy to assemble and the software appears to be quite powerful.

"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 Processer. Built-in Temperature Sensor turns off power when servo temperature becomes too high. Servo operation characteristics can be changed according to preferred speed and torque. All the servos are calibrated and have the same performance." source
