Big Plans for BigDog
Darpa's BigDog is about to go through a robotic hormonic step up. While he can already carry more than 300 lbs. for about 13 miles, the organization wants to eventually allow the drone to be able to carry 1250 lbs. at 10 mph and operate by GPS, as opposed to its current remote. The project has been dubbed "Legged Squad Support." They would also like the 4-legged L3 bot to be quieter while sneaking up on the evil enemy. We suspect that's not going to happen anytime soon.
