AlphaDog Is the New Generation of the Creepiest Robot Ever

Carrying on from Big Dog in the old thread http://forums.macnn.com/89/macnn-lou...adruped-robot/

This one is horse size, if it does get hit hard enough to knock it over, it can get up again.

It isn't noisy like the last one because its still tethered, the last one was developed more and had a 2 stroke engine on board), they're planning on a 4 stroke engine on board this one.

This is further confirming what I thought before, humans are going to be enslaved by robots when they don't want to be turned off. Forget Terminators, if these keep going they'll end up with real autonomous AT-AT walkers.

It'll be much easier if you just comply.
