The Empire Strikes Back

February 3, 2010

This is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Funded by the Defense Department (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) , Boston Dynamics BigDog robot looks like a prototype for an Imperial Walker. The AT-AT walker is only a few years away it looks like.

(note: watch this with the sound off, the noises tend to be annoying)

Boston Dynamics received $10 Million grant from DARPA to develop this incredible robot.The BigDog can now carry 340 pounds. It is intended to be used for carrying troop supplies in the near future.

    I think this most amazing part of this video is the way it stabilizes itself after slipping on the ice.
