You guys ABSOLUTELY must watch this.

.. Its the US Spec' Op's & Infantry's New Pack Mule in Action.

Technology is amazing ... watch the whole thing, they really try to mess it up. If they did that to a mule or horse , PETA would go NUTS !!! Watch, now we are gonna get Robot Rights Activists next !!

It's cool, but scary! Carries 340 lbs! They do need to cut down the sound emmisison tho!

We aren't too far away from seeing robots based on this technology fighting each other like all the sci-fi films...man doesn't stand a chance!

Once again, The Simpsons provides a chillingly accurate look into the future! Quoted from an episode written way back in 1997. It's the commencement speech given at Bart and Lisa's graduation from Rommelwood military academy:

The wars of the future will not be fought on the battlefield or at sea.
They will be fought in space, or possibly on top of a very tall
mountain. In either case, most of the actual fighting will be done by
small robots. And as you go forth today remember always your duty is
clear: To build and maintain those robots. Thank you.

when it slipped on the ice..i was very impressed that it kept its balance. I don't know how that little motor isn't throwing a rod though...sounds like it's about 9 grand the whole time

Impressive. I know if I tried half that shit carrying nothing I'd be on my friggin ass and in the hospital with broken servos and control units.
