Remember the DARPA-funded Big Dog robot? It's a giant robot that looks like two giant dogs ran headlong into each other and fused in the middle. Then they got smart, and learned how to never fall over and carry weapons. Seriously, when that guy kicks it and it just stumbles around but won't fall over? Fuck that.
Well, now they've made it small. It's even more amazing, and possibly more scary. The thought that my child will some day (soon) find this quaint and clumsy is giving me chills.
