Boston Dynamics, who have a lot of US military and DARPA money invested in their work, frequently build awesome things that I want, like littledog:
Bigdog, and other robots being developed for troop support:
And even robots that move like real people and make Asimo look like a kid’s toy:
And now they’ve given bigdog a robot arm so it can hurl bricks, (bbc news) because Skynet will find all of these remarkably useful when the time comes…
So now I need them to build me an army, one worthy of the Nerd Lair.
