This is a new feature designed to better adapt the robot to the environment. Instructing the robot to modify its limb's length, the developers can then make it walk across any terrain.
DyRET is an energy-efficient robot developed at the University of Oslo. DyRet means "animal" in the Norwegian language. The name does not appear to be coincidental because it's energy-efficient and can effortlessly walk across any terrain. It can definitely be likened to any wild animal.
The robot's key feature is the variable length of its limb's, making it incredibly useful in unpredictable environments. Equipped with sensors, cameras, and advanced artificial intelligence, the robot analyses its environment and adapts to it. DyRET has been tested on a wide range of surfaces.
The robot is planned to be used in disaster zones, search operations, and various hard-to-reach places like mines and even other planets.
