    Introducing WildCat

    Okay. This is just spooky. Looks like SkyNet is approaching right on time.

    Awesome watched a few of the other videos too, that thing is amazing, think they need to clear a space for more leg room under the middle if they want it to run more like a dog and be more stable as a dogs paws go past the front legs when running. At least a dog that's fit, health and not inbred causing leg/hip problems.

    This is from the same group at BostonDynamics:

    Just heard it's all funded by Skynet, erm I mean the pentagon:
    Atlas Update



    Atlas is an anthropomorphic robot designed to operate on rough terrain. The video shows Atlas balancing as it walks on rocky terrain and when pushed from the side. The balance and control system places the feet and swings the arms and upper body to stay upright. The controller uses inertial, kinematic and load data from Atlas's sensors. Atlas is being developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA's M3 program. For more information visit Boston Dynamics: Dedicated to the Science and Art of How Things Move.

    I heard there's going to be 3 more Terminator films. They might not need actors or CGI soon!

    Wow there would be some serious computing power in that thing!

    Love to get a close up look at the sand flea, seems that it can land on either side and still be able to jump, now that's very interesting, love to know what could create that much lift in such a small device. Guess it's all extremely light ad the wheels look to be made of a very light plastic and hollow.

    Very cool!
