Thanks to the actuators, the robot moves on 22 axes, and now the movements of the puppy look even more natural. Of course, for so many built-in batteries, the charge lasts for about two hours. But when the battery is running low, the puppy will find his docking station in the form of a nice rug, and will be recharged.
