Freaky dogbot walks the walk
This is a video of the Big Dog robot, a sort-of dog-like walking robot developed by Boston Dynamics (with a big chunk of funding from DARPA, the US military's mad scientist division.) And it's both amazing and really, really creepy.
It's just uncannily alive looking. The bit where it stumbles on the ice, then recovers, is just so precisely like an animal (more a juvenile deer than a dog, our what-animal-does-that-robot-walk-like experts tell us) that you feel the future is finally here.
So take a good look at the movement of those legs - because that's what's going to be pursuing you across the smouldering rubble in a few decades time when the robot uprising takes place.
