Big Dog is one of my favorite examples of how far we are coming with robotics. Designed to be a “mule” of sorts for the military, at least initially, it is capable of walking on all kinds of terrain. Because it is a walking robot, it can go places with foot soldiers that other wheeled or tracked robots can’t.

This is the “weaponized” version of Big Dog, which should be called Big Bull

WALL-E is going to be the best Pixar film yet. The story is incredible and the animation work and direction continues the tradition of pushing the envelope at Pixar.

The Boston Dynamics Big-Dog. An impressive walking robot being developed under a D.A.R.P.A. grant.

It really looks like an oversized walking dog but it’s really supposed to be a “mule” to help soldiers carry heavy loads.

I think it’s an AT-Walker Version 1
