THE RECENTLY RELEASED VIDEO ABOVE BLEW THE MINDS OF SEVERAL MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPORTERS.
“Boston Dynamics doesn't care if you never sleep again. Welcome to the future. We've just met the robotic soldiers fighting the war on Christmas,” wrote the Washington Post’s Rachel Feltman.
“We have to applaud the team on creating a video that will be spread far and wide and inspire fear in the hearts of many while also spreading the good news about the latest innovations in robotics,” she added.
I DON'T KNOW WHY THE SHOCK BECAUSE FAR MORE SOPHISTICATED ROBOTS EXIST.

SEE SPOT RUN.
RUN, SPOT, RUN.
(IT WAS "SPOT" WITH REINDEER ANTLERS IN THE "CHILLING" VIDEO THE MSM ARE ALL AFLUTTER OVER.
"WILDCAT", The video above shows WildCat's best performance as of 2013, 19 mph.
MIT's "CHEETAH" , as seen in the video below, could do 28+ mph in 2012, is now mastering the jump and running on all terrains untethered. .
The use of four versatile limbs allows it to adapt to the test scenario in ways that would be difficult for a bipedal robot.
FROM VERY LARGE TO TINY, AND ALSO, MICROSCOPIC.
Jun 2, 2008
Microscopic robots crafted to maneuver separately without any obvious guidance are now assembling into self-organized structures after years of continuing research led by a Duke University computer scientist. Each microrobot is shaped something like a spatula but with dimensions measuring just microns, or millionths of a meter.

Jan 15, 2008
In a first-of-its-kind experiment, the brain activity of a monkey has been used to control the real-time walking patterns of a robot halfway around the world, according to researchers at Duke University Medical Center.
THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA WAS SO IMPRESSED BY, SO RATTLED BY THE NEW "REINDEER" THAT THEY OFFERED THE FOLLOWING WEBSITES TO "KEEP YOU AWAKE AT NIGHT", OR SO THEY IMAGINED...
~AI can now muddle its way through the math SAT about as well as you can
~Go ahead and break this robot’s legs. It can figure out how to chase you without them.
~Oh cool, now this robotic cheetah can make running leaps
~Not one, but two robot astronauts straight out of sci-fi are headed to Boston for training
~This robotic penguin chick is doing undercover work in Antarctica
~Here’s the argument for banning killer robots before we’re swarmed by them
YEAH, FAIRLY IMPRESSIVE, BUT THERE IS BIGGER AND BETTER OUT THERE.
ASK DARPA...THOUGH THEY WON'T ANSWER....
