This is cool, but creepy. :eek: Can't wait until they make fifty foot tall walkers with this thing... That'll make my dreams come true. :D

Huh, never thought about that... But if it can do what's shown in the video, one would surely hope that it could get up if knocked over?

Thats pretty wild and just a step a way from being what the Preaditor Drone UAV is...all it needs is a camera and video link up and a weapon of one sort or another to deploy.

Now if they could put a more effective silencer on the 2-cycle engine it uses, it would be great for carying extra gear on foot patrol.

Wow, imagine the implications! This might be the first step towards paraplegics and amputees regaining their mobility. Cool!

And to see that Darpa is involved with that project raises flags but it really is some sweet technology in progress.

The recoveries were cool! But I think it could use an upgrade. When they can get that thing to run around at 20 mph, I'll be impressed. You have no idea what kind of programming it takes to make a robot balance itself and walk! The ice recovery was excellent. The variables are constantly changing.

On another note... A huge pack of those with mounted guns would be a bit scary!
