The BigDog

Woke up to find this going around my Twitterverse this morning (thanks Beezly), and it was so good I had to share it:

It's a quadruped robot designed by Boston dynamics called BigDog and is amazingly lifelike - for a robot that's something between a big dog and a small horse. Much more lifelike that if it had been designed to look humanoid though. I actually felt sorry for it when someone kicks it during the movie. Robot technology is scarily advanced. I could do with one of these to carry my case later today....
