The Big Dog is a genius creation by the u.s. military originally created to carry supplies through and over almost anything in its way.
It uses a gyroscopic laser precision internal navigation system to create one of the most stable units possible.
An artists rendering of what the BigDog would look like trotting beside soldiers in a war.
Rather than the soldiers strapping the weight to their backs, like in all previous war engagements, this small horse like robot can carry up to 250 pounds without affecting its balance or mileage
Early tests involved the Bigdog being controlled by remote.
Interesting Bigdog video shows the beast being kicked rather hard in the side and though it stumbles it never loses its balance. You can also see this military experiment climbing over a mountain of bricks, trickily manuveuring over an icy patch of road and gracefully climbing up a snowy hill.
