Google-owned Boston Dynamics has started testing its LS3 robot 'mule' out in the field and already soldiers have given the robot a name: 'Cujo'. 'Cujo' literally means 'dog from hell', which incidentally is not what Google's helpful robot looks like in the slightest, then again, who's going to argue with a troop of US marines. Boston Dynamics has been testing 'Cujo' out in Hawaii ,where soldiers will be putting the robot transport to the test, pushing its 20-mile range and making sure it can tackle the sorts of rugged terrain it was built for. Capable of self-righting, 'Cujo' can carry up to 400lbs of supplies and has enough fuel for a 20-mile mission lasting up to 24 hours.
TextWhile Boston Dynamics draws the line at creating robots that can kill, a campaign called 'Stop Killer Robots' is currently building momentum in its aim to ban all robots which have the ability to select a human target without external approval from a mortal, human soul.

I wonder if they have managed to cut down on the noise it makes yet? I remember it being super noisy and i notice in that news clip there is no sound.
