No, not a walking machine anyway. The nearest to either of them you will get is an ssbn or a FROG. Walking missile platforms are just tooo complicated to be at all practical. They would be too heavy, very slow and very vulnerable at the legs. Complete fiction in my opinion. A tracked or wheeled platform would be far superior.

The closest subject I can think of would be a Mech that a team in California is trying to build. Their goal is to eventually create a robot similiar to a gundam. They are making progress albeit slowly. the link is

There was a rumor of a very large robotic like contraption used in the Gulf War to clear roadways and that sort of stuff. So i would not put it past them. I will keep looking for you though.

If you are referring to an ExoSkeleton, then yes, there are prototypes built and being tested. They are for Nurses to lift Patients out of bed. It is a Very large system, that allows a typical female nurse to lift a 300 Lb. man out of bed and place him on wheelchair, on another bed, in a bath, etc.
It uses compressed air to fill bladders that are form radius around the knees, back, arms, etc. small triggers activate valves, the bags fill, and the nurse is able to lift. It is very bulky, slow and cumbersome. In the future i am sure they will be far smaller, lighter, and far stronger.
The Military is working on a exoskins, which are not to add Strength, but to create environmental suits. it is very thin, comparable to a wet suit. it creates heat or cools the soldier wearing it.
There are several prototypes to aid running and jumping, for recreational purposes. The military is funding these projects to further the design. Eventually you will see all these systems blend into a single exoskeleton.
