    Boston Dynamics keeps working on their BigDog quadruped robot, which will probably grow to be the future AT-AT of the Pentagon. Its evolution since the last time we saw it is nothing sort of mindblowing, and a bit spooky... [Read more]

    Looks like they've taken a couple of the bi-pedal robots and stuck them together ... seen a few vids of bi-peds with the stability thing ... this looks like a test-bed for a robotic mule ... if any of you have been following the Darpa Grand and Urban Challenges they're trying to get an automonous vehicle up and rolling ... useful for a scout vehicle and also they plan to use them for convoys (perhaps with the lead vehicle being driven by a human).

    Oh this is cool along similar lines ... and more like an AT-AT (as an AT-AT is driven rather than being a robot) ... well actually more like the AT-TE from episode 2&3 as it has 6 legs rather than 4.

    I was trying to find pics of a human controlled walker from a few years ago (late 90s?) but can't remember who it was by, thought it was US mil.


    But my personal worry is about 'Skynet' being 'born' rather than the Empire rising up! ... and yes I am aware that someone in the UK Military thought it would be a laugh to name our system of military satellites Skynet!
