Re: DARPA's Robot challange has begun

The big holdback is power. My guess is that this thing would be as noisy in the field as the Big Dog. For it to be useful, I might scale it up and have it powered by the type of atomic pile they were going to put in the Ford Nucleon.

Like the Alien, you don't dare shoot it, for fear of corium lava from the walking meltdown.
