I happened upon this video recently. It is a video of a legged locomotion machine that is funded by DARPA. DARPA is known by some as the “Mad Scientist” wing of the Pentagon and is famous for several things, including the autonomous vehicle race through traffic in November of last year. I find it to be both intriguing and creepy. It’s also a bit noisy, but I have had coffee makers that could compare to it. 😕 Look at how closely the legs on this machine resemble human legs as it corrects itself when it stumbles (or someone kicks it). Freaky!
That being said, if I were in the woods while this thing came trouncing by, I would have shat myself instantly, and cried like a little girl.
