Over the years I've seen pneumatic applications tried in a variety of products and robots as well. Some work much better than others but one thing still rings true, the energy requirements for the compressor are usually less than the combined total of motors & servos were it an electrically based system and not pneumatic.

Nice article and time will tell how successful this robot will become (or not). O0
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

 Any thing FESTO does pretty much impress me.
 I have done design work on a pneumatic data bus and address bus.
 As well as a mechanical and data bus and address bus for robots and machines.
 The human body has its motors spread out on all part of the body as muscle mass.
 In robotics having motors will make a mobile too heavy.
 So to get around this is to have a one very powerful engine and then have the power distributed to other
part of the body by pneumatics.
