Lifelike robotic quadraped

Boston Dynamics, a small DARPA-funded robotics company is designing the robot in the video for the US military. The video shows the bot, called BigDog, maintaining balance while being kicked, slipping on ice, climbing over rubble and leaping. It can carry more than 300 pounds.

Frankly, that thing is really creepy…don’t know why. It’s just scary.

Also, it’s tough to be impressed when Dr. Loveless invented one hundred times bigger 130 years ago, as depicted in the western documentary, Wild Wild West.
