What sounds like a chainsaw, walks like it’s drunk, and looks like a headless centaur with backwards rear legs carrying some packs?

This robot that is being developed for the Military:

Seems to work pretty damn well.. a bit rigid but I guess that is to be expected at this point in the game.

If you weren’t creeped out enough by that first one, check out this headless wonder:

I no longer want a segway for sniper practice.  I want a gang of the above robots to run around with bottles of tannerite attempting to dodge my bullets.

The company developing the robots – Boston Dynamics
