New Robot Dog to be Unveiled Next Week

Robot eggheads at Germany's TU Darmstadt plan to unveil in Atlanta next week a NEW ROBOT DOG they hope will fill the void in our souls left when Sony put the Aibo to sleep. Anyone have more info on this robot pooch?

The German translation of robot dog is "Roboterhund". Apparently the robot was developed for participation in the Robocup.
TU Darmstadt has a webpage with some photos and videos of the robot dog.

I was mistaken. The Robocup page is showing images of Aibo robots playing football only. The robot now was mentioned on the radio and according to the new robot will be presented on July 7th on the web-site (it still has no name).

I found more information and I posted an article myself. TU Darmstadt already released a couple of photos in their press archive.
