BB Gadgets: Big Dog robotic pack mule on ice and snow

From BB Gadgets:
This new video of "Big Dog," the amazing quadrupedal robot from Boston Dynamics, shows of its latest tricks: the ability to walk through snow and even over ice, catching itself when it slips and falls. Its normal gait is unnatural, but when it starts to scramble to recover it looks eerily real.

  1. Couldn’t they have got it to carry something other than bags of wasps? That buzzing would really start to annoy me after a couple of miles…

  2. Too bad the thing sounds like an asthmatic lawnmower, not to mention it doesn’t walk very fast.
