    I watched some other videos before about Big Dog, that thing does not fall over even when you kick it. Here's another video of wildcat:



    I never seen a robot with legs running that fast before =O

    I hope I'm still around when IF Prototype LQ-84i comes to life.

    Cool, no doubt about that.
    But everything helpful's made into a weapon, mainly because everyone else will turn it into one anyway.

    We can level the playing field and start selling cyborg body attachments for ourselves.

    And there I remember watching a video not so long ago about the world's first automated gun. i.e that shit shoots it self and aims itself..... autobot.

    Put that gun on that running thing and you got yourself a fucking robot army no one can fuck with. The future will be a scary fucking place in 100-500 years time.

    We better not be around for it.
    It's smart because people killing people is murder.....doesn't say anything about robots. It's not a stupid thing to assume World leaders are thinking of this.
