Two internships of 9-12 months duration are available to work on the Skippy project at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT).  Skippy is a highly athletic, yet extremely simple robot that aims to achieve levels of physical performance far beyond today's legged robots.  We intend to build Skippy next year, but we are building a precursor, called Tippy, right now.  This robot will test the new, high-performance balancing skills that Skippy will need next year, and the job of the interns will be to implement those balancing skills.
