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

This is completely strange. These factory workers in China sit inside a metal stamping press as it makes parts. They are, for all practical purposes, part of the machine. A true cyborg wonder.
