Fucking rat bastards at DARPA! Well, okay, that might be an over-reaction. But look at this video. Amazing. And does anyone else notice how much this steady-but-still-akward movement looks like a crawling human baby? Imagine when these things cost only a couple of thousand dollars to produce, and when you can slap a weapons system on it.

Awesome! Now weaponize that little doggie!

I love the adaptive response to unforseen obstacles.  With networking, the first line of these suckers would learn terrain for the rest of them behind it to.  Like bomb sniffers, you could send in one wave of plain jane spotters... then send in the gunners behind who would know all the tricks...  very cool...

fuckin' robots - how do they work?

No, seriously, how do they work?  Because I'm not going to sleep at night until I can dismantle this one.

That reminds me

Of the boston dynamics Big Dog project; I guess they're related? Some amazing recovery technology here. Check it out walking on ice towards the end!

I thought the same thing

It instantly reminded me of the Big Dog, only much quieter.

love that but...

why spend all that money developing a robot to weaponise when you can just strap a bomb to a gerbil that costs £1.50 from any pet shop and those things can cross any terrain!
