    This robot is actually frightening! It sounds more like a bee than a dog. Wouw, I would run fast if I saw that robot comming. Maybe a better way to scare burglars than a real dog ๐Ÿ™‚

    I got really freaked out by a thing when the robot was kicked on ice. It was just like a human!

    In separate trials, BigDog runs at 4 mph, climbs slopes up to 35 degrees, walks across rubble, and carries a 340 lb load.

    Holy cow, is that thing for real? And is it gas powered? Looks useless though.

    Extreme engineering too hard to believe. Those you designed this are genius engineers. What most I liked about this is the fact that Robotic Dog balance itself even after it is kicked badly. It even walks like a real dog.

    Wheeled locomotion is very efficient on the right terrain. This transformation lets the robot switch to climb stairs and handle rough terrain very nicely…

    In the era of Technology there are many man made things that we can’t believe that they are man made. Man creat many robots that work more than that a human.The robots can do that work that a man can’t do. So as robots are invented by man as well as humans can invented robotics dog for there entertainment. They are fully automatic and they obeyed all the order because they are programmed in such a manners that they obey all the orders of anyone.
