Robo Mule

This article in NewScientist describes an advanced robotic quadruped that is being developed for the US military. Ok, no big deal, right? Well, take a look at the video clip of the mechanical beast. I was floored. It moved so realistically that I found myself feeling sorry for it when engineers repeatedly kicked it. They were trying (unsuccessfully) to make it fall over. Wow.
