Someone built this.
Someone built this.
that is seriously amazing.
Hey Brendan, welcome to last March.
easily the scariest thing i've ever seen. fucking creepy
i want to ride that thing.
Thanks KZ, it's nice to be here in last march.
why does it have to make the scariest sound ever?
It's powered by a single cylinder two stroke motor :)
and no, i'm not kidding.
someone didnt build this, boston dynamics built this. i have always said they will be the death of us all.
check out this one this is the truly scary one. imagine these coming at you.
wow that one is sweet too.
but the first one is just ridiculous.
straight up videogame shit.
reminds me of something out of DOOM.
the sound and the legs all wonky and flailing.
it should shoot fireballs.
that's what i was guessing. must be running at peak fuel efficiency and driving a generator. at least that's what i'd do. lol
agreed. ReHX or whatever's pretty scary too but bigdog is just insane.
well i've never heard of boston dynamics and they are in my own state...in a town that i frequently visit not 15 miles away. yeah...fear...creeps...heebie jeebies...anxiety...that was just not a fun experience watching those videos. lol. i will go back to hiding from the future now.
that's cool. while on the subject of crazy robots a friend of mine was an engineering student at Brown and built a robot out of the mix-matched skeletons of several small mammals. He linked the bones together with hydraulics and programmed the thing to run around.
gahhhh that is creepy. i think i might have nightmares too...
seriously these scare the shit out of me..
machines shouldn't move like that.
2-stroke motor driving moped ridden by human making that sound = the sound of fun
2-stroke motor driving scary machine dog bug thing = scariest sound ever.
I always figured it would be best for a machine to fly in whatever fashion suites it best (excluding the predator drone). Something out of Half Life 2 would scare the shit out of me, but that BigDog sure does not help me sleep at ease knowing the US military will soon deploy them...
that is if they already aren't...
good to see you're up too mark.
I like Russian robots.
holy crap, that bigdog robot is nuts.
When it slipped on the ice I swear it look like it was alive.
Not much longer till these things are all over the place. Definitely within our lifetime.
Metal Gear, anyone?
lmao!! I think that's more creepy than the first video.
I for one welcome our new robotic overlords.
Good thing is, you won't have to worry about that thing sneaking up on you with all that noise. Its still creepy.
Khz rode a couple times with a guy who worked on this. He was one of Phil_E's friends. I instructed him to destroy it immediately, as it is clearly evil. Then we never saw him again. I assume big dog killed him.
hahaha them on the swing is the best!
lol the spoof was great. i am going to have nightmares of 100s of those things coming at me buzzing
