BigDog being kicked - Boston Dynamics


This is an animated gif of quadruped robot BigDog being kicked before it stumbles and regains its balance. There is something unnerving about how life-like it is. Uncanny valley? The robot was created back in 2005 by Boston Dynamics. The project is funded by DARPA because there's a hope that these types of robots can be used to transport cargo / act as carrying mules.
