This mechanized pack animal will follow soldiers wherever duty calls them. Click here to download an incredible video (http://www.bostondynamics.com/dist/BigDog_Feb-26-2006.wmv).

well, I finally watched the video with my wife. We were both blown away by that. What was amazing was how when someone kicked it, it could automatically correct itself

Yea! Didnt it look fake? Like two guys inside there with their legs sticking out of it jumping around?

I kept waiting to see Steve-o or Johhny Knoxville pop up somewhere in the video.
