    Wilcat is awesome, I can't wait to be chased down the street by that :D

    Also this one is BS, especially the "stand on one leg while we swing weights at you" bit....

    No I think it's real, It just BS that there is almost a Terminator ready to kill me :D

    I meant BS in a "wow that's awesome" way!

    Petman was awesome even when it was a pair of legs with a huge box on top :) The standing on one leg while getting hit by a swinging weight just makes it even more so :D
    Just wait until someone hits it in the face and breaks its glasses!

    Am I the only one who wants Atlas and Big Dog to turn around and bash the shit out of the developers that are bullying them?

    The AI could do with a bit of work.. A smarter robot would just get out of the way of the weights that bastards are throwing at it :).

    I think you're safe from Terminator style murdering as long as you stay out of the range of the extension cord needed to power it :). How much of Asimo is taken up by battery? or how long can he survive for?

    Most of the larger quadrapeds boston dynamics have shown to the public that aren't tethered to the wall are engine powered.
