Robotic Pack Animal for the Military

You all have got to see this. Boston Dynamics has developed a robotic pack animal that can carry over 300 pounds on ice without falling over.

It's louder than a leaf blower but I can't get my jaw off the keyboard!

Comments at Coilhouse were divided between:

1. It's cute!

2. It's creepy!

Count me in the creepy pile.

Why go to all that expense? Just use llamas.

Got a point, rbj.

Still, Big Dog IS awesome. Very impressive.
