Boston Dynamics BigDog

The abilities of this robot BigDog from Boston Dynamics are amazing, it moves just like a living breathing animal, minus the head though.

The way it walks through snow, on ice, up hills and over obstacles is simply amazing. Looks a little goofy when it slips on ice, but sure enough it's able to keep on going.

Shame it's purpose for existing is for a military purpose, I could imagine it aiding climbers, search and rescue teams, any number of peaceful operations.
