BigDog is powered by a gasoline engine that drives a hydraulic actuation system. BigDog's legs are articulated like an animal's, and have compliant
elements that absorb shock and recycle energy from one step to the next. BigDog is the size of a large dog or small mule, measuring 1 meter long, 0.7
meters tall and 75 kg weight.
Its amazing, yet extremely terrifying for some reason.....
And those guys seem to be getting 'kicks' out of kicking it, lol.
