Default Boston Dynamics' BigDog quadruped robot can walk on all 4's. Watch the video!!!

Did a search, seems like no one has posted this before.

So Boston Dynamics is working on a quadruped robot that seems really impressive. Check out the video, it's kind of creepy how amazing this is. I'm not really sharing this because it's impressive (which it is), but more so, because of the emotional response I received within after watching it. You will see the robot get kicked, but keep it's balance. After watching that, I kind of felt sorry for it (which is so odd, to feel sorry for a machine), and it kind of scared me because it seemed like the machine was in a state of "fear"/it was responsive.

Watch the video, tell me what you guys think.

Creepy.

Mount a AK-47 on top of it and lets send it into Iraq.

it's pretty cool, when you think of the engineering aspect that went into all the servos, gyros and potentiometers to keep it going and reacting like that...

then again,

that makes a difference.

Theres a video clip of it falling down the stairs which I can't find.

Looks like something out of a sci-fi horror flick. Reminds me of the robot dog-spiders in that book Farenheit 451.
