On BBC news this morning they showed this video as the next thing from the Boston Dynamics Stable..... this is a Google owned company that was developing that " robot donkey" targeted at the Military. By comparison that is small potatoes when you see this.
To me the most amazing part comes near end of video when they smash the robot to the ground with a huge pole and it gets up.
Where this is going to go is anyone's guess some pretty incredible tech. One thing for sure send a robot like this in to defuse a bomb and it can be blown up with nobody shedding a tear or not coming home.
