BigDog Robot

If you have not seen the Boston Dynamics BigDog robot, you must go to their website and watch the video. It is uncanny how agile this remote controlled bot really is. The quadruped walks across ice, slips, but catches itself and does not fall! It climbs over rocks, through snow, up hills etc all while carrying 340 pounds of supplies. This amazing 3 foot tall tool is going to dramatically help out our soldiers in places like Afghanistan.
While you are on the site, check out their other machines...one of them climbs walls like a spider!!!
Speaking of things that are Agile, check out the Agilistas group on LinkedIn....some great discussions going on :)
