Boston Dynamics: The Leader in Lifelike Human Simulation


It's actually kind of freaky how it walk in the forest. The freakiest part is in the middle of the vid when it slips in the ice

its cool to watch how it reacts. like how it recovered after the guy kicked it and watching it on the ice.

They should add a plastic head to make it look less freaky. They could a few batteries or something there. But then again it might trow it out of balance.
