    I was disappointed when it passed that big tree, without lifting it's leg. :confused:

    Thats amazing! The motion is so fluid for a robot, apart from where it gets pushed on the ice!

    The way it rebalances itself is very impressive, but what are the military going to use it for?

    Plus it's bloody noisy. The other side will be able to hear from miles away! :D

    I think to carry stuff across terrain where vehicles cannot make it.

    But the sound itself is friggin scary eh? :eek:

    What next? Robotic dolphins?

    I guess at least these robotic dogs won't crap all over the pavement.
