BigDog: four-legged robotic mule

Engineered by Boston Dynamics, with funding from DARPA, this four-legged robotic mule can carry 340 pounds of weight through snow, concrete, ice, rubble, and dirt. Dubbed “BigDog”, the monster-looking robot is equipped with super high tech gyroscopes to help maintain its balance, as seen in the video.

With $10 million in funding, I hope they can fix the noise it makes. I think the culprit is the gas-powered motor. Watching the video made me mute the damn volume.
