BigDog Hauls for the Army

Take a peek at BigDog, dubbed by its makers as the "alpha male" of robotic animals. About the size of a Great Dane, it can go 4 mph and carry over 300 lbs. The robotic canine was sponsored by the the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Controlled by remote on army bases, he has a computerized brain, a small gas engine, and legs that can reposition. Boston Dynamics claims that it is now working on a faster and stronger robotic pup with eye-like sensors to make "intelligent decisions."
