LittleDog, the cool, creepily agile robot that Gareth posted about in 2007, has received an upgrade.

This is the more advanced version of this robot, created by the University of Southern California. The robot is completely autonomous and trained by machine learning algorithms. The video is real-time, i.e., not sped up.
