Spot [The Dynamic 4-Legged Robot]

What you have just witnessed is the beginning of the end of the world as we know it.  Robots that can be kicked, but won't fall down. In all seriousness, when that guy kicked the robot and it stayed on its feet I was thoroughly impressed.  For a robot to react like that so quickly, with almost human-like instincts is incredible.  This four legged bot is meant for indoor and outdoor use, and I can think of countless ways this robotic dog could be used. The real question is, are you scared? Well, you should be.
