Big Dog Robots Treks Through Ice and Snow

Posted on March 21, 2008

Here's the latest video of Big Dog, the quadraped robot army mule from Boston Dynamics that carries gear. Big Dog even treks through the ice and snow with no trouble - well Big Dog slips a lot but he stays upright. Big can even jump. Boston Dymanics says Big Dog runs at 4 mph, climbs slopes up to 35 degrees, walks across rubble, and carries a 340 lb load. It would be nice if they would give him a head so he would not look quite so creepy.
