        When it started walking, I started laughing.

    Funny, yes, and there is something just wrong about the movement of those legs. smile

    But it's also pretty impressive.  I've worked around and with automatic machinery most of my life and even programmed some, but I wouldn't have the faintest to program all those hydraulic valves to open/close and the motors to run/stop/reverse to move that thing forward.

    And to walk over broken ground and boulders?  Pretty good, and when it went through the brush, that's better than most people could do without seeing the ground, breaking stride or falling.

    Impressive.

      I would love to see some candid camera shots of those things walking down the street and people running into them for the first time.

        That would be great, wouldn't it?  They wouldn't dare do that, though - inevitably some kook would shoot it as either an invader from Mars or a demon from Hell. lol
