Thanks for the compilation.
That little "flea" robot looks like any ordinary boring 4 wheeled robot, until you see it jump on top of a small building. Woah ! Awesome.
but are these things going to be used as weapons in the future?
Although these current models seems built for troop support, transport or rescue, I am pretty sure some other model will be used eventually as
weapons. They probably have other armed models in development that is kept under wraps that can... erm... terminate anything it has in sight.
They still need to find a proper energy source though. I saw a vid of BigDog roaming through the woods, and the sound of the gas engine is a dead
Armed robots already exists, and are use to guard the DMZ between the two Korea's for example.
Some are mobile on tracks, and others are stationary (sort of like an auto-turret). But they are in no way comparable to what BD does.
A armed robot built by BD, would surely be creepy as hell. Imagine PETMAN wielding a machete in one hand, and a heavy assault riffle in the other.
I'd c*@* in my undies so much, my pants would drop from the sheer weight.
