Not nearly as agile as a real dog, but still mighty impressive!

Thats neat as heck. To the point of even being scary in the tests where it's under it's own power. While it won't be exactly tomorrow until they get it perfect, they are getting close. The fluid leg movement and reflex actions were DARN impressive. (recovery on the ice)

Did you notice how much weight it was carrying? It wasn't a dog, it was a mule, and it walks better than I do. I am jealous and very impressed with the agility of the device.

What would you do if you ran accross that thing in the woods ??? I would probably soil my pants as I emptied my rifle on it, not that I can hit anything anyway!!!! That's pretty cool but almost creepy. It would really creep me out if it was quiet and didn't sound like a weed eater...

My first thought: That is neat!
Second thought: How can I kill it!

So Ya Randy, Terminator did come to mind.

Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.

It takes a village... armed with pitchforks, torches, shovels, hay rakes, shotguns, assault rifles, assorted pistols, Jeep battering rams, baseball bats and about anything else you can get your hands on... Star Wars is just around the corner... if you let it!
