Where did you get "FEMA" from? Even the video clearly says "DARPA" at the end of it. There was a thread about this several months ago on BFC- the
general consensus was that the thing creeped everyone the hell out. With that go-kart engine going, you'd sure hear that thing coming- it's not like
it would sneak up on anyone. This is just a research project to further the development of robotic mobility. Clearly, they're making strong advances
in the field, but the "Big Dog" is just a very expensive prototype/ toy. What you need to worry about is when they figure out how to make that sort
of thing bigger, stronger, faster, and cheaper. Then they'll be able to make real-world "Terminator" droids that can come up stairs and other
obstructions to get you.
