Modeled after the Troodon dinosaur, Troody is the brainchild of Peter Dilworth, MIT student. Six years in development, Troody can walk, sit and run. (This video mostly shows walking.)
1.5 feet tall and 4.2 feet long, Troody was meant to roam freely in museums to get people interested in science. And if that didn't work, Troody would be equipped with lasers and subsequently take over the world...slowly.
