The BigDog Robot Haunts My Dreams .. Now Let it Haunt YOURS

Dave and Graham over at Stop Podcasting Yourself shared this terrifying tidbit last week:
BigDog is a product of Boston Dynamics, with funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
Lest you forget (like I did several times throughout the presentation), this thing is a robot. It's not real. It's not alive. What it is, though, is a horrifying reminder that becoming self-aware is completely within the realm of possibility. It's like a Lucasfilm creature banged a Jim Henson creation on the set of MythBusters.

Why can't you knock it over!?!?!
