Amazing robotic advances

While I was on vacation last week I came across an article about an amazing robot being developed as a "pack animal" for soldiers. I have a long time love of robotics, and downloaded the video ... and it is surreal! You have to go and check out the BigDog from Boston Dynamics and download the video. It is stunning to watch this thing. As I watch ... I just keep thinking of seeing old World War II movies where two guys are carrying a stretcher. This is stunning to see! There is an amazing human/biomimicry component that I just can't believe ... can you tell?

I'm downloading the videos of their other robots now ...
