I guess by now we've realized the robocop is a hoax made by the same fellow who made District 9.
But the first one, I don't really get what the big deal is with this one. Untethered it sounds like it makes as much noise as a jet.. but the fact
that it can keep its footing on solid ice is pretty cool, and the fact that it carries 200 pound payloads would be a huge help for people who have to
work in very remote place but can't carry pack animals, say archaeologists working in the desert, or in the Amazon.
Seems to me, hook this puppy up to a gps, power it with solar cells and you can take heavy equipment nearly anywhere.
