Now this kind of freak's me out,a robotic dog that throws cinder blocks!
Talk about your urban warfare,I want to see it throw an axe or something.
BigDog handles heavy objects. The goal is to use the strength of the legs and torso to help power motions of the arm. This sort of dynamic,
whole-body approach is routinely used by human athletes and animals, and will enhance the performance of advanced robots. The control techniques and
actuators needed for dynamic manipulation are being developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from the Army Research Laboratory's RCTA program
