No cow tipping the robot, thanks – “A nimble, four-legged robot is so surefooted it can recover its balance even after being given a hefty kick. The machine, which moves like a cross between a goat and a pantomime horse, is being developed as a robotic pack mule for the US military.” – [via] Link.

Update: THE RAW FEED found some video here (WMV) – Link.

  1. it’s the big dog. If you go look at the Boston Dynamics web page, you’ll see that they actually try to push it over. One of the times they do it, it’s a push that might knock over a person. Pretty interesting design.
