All I can say is, “Holy shit.”Too bad they don’t show what it does after it tumbles down that bigass pile of rocks. That would be a clincher.

I’m starting to feel a little…

Ok, this thing is pretty fuckin’ awesome, except for the model airplane noise that would get this thing blasted out of the woods by an RPG during combat. You know that the government has a huge boner for robots, and I’m sure they’re getting all fired up about this one.

In the video, you’ll see that the Big Dog slips on the ice and recovers. That’s my fav part. The motion of the legs is pretty astounding.
