I’m already picturing the twin M134 Miniguns I’m mounting on either side.

This is so cool. But… what applications does it actually have? I’m really struggling to see many uses for it, or situations where it’s better than a person doing the same job. I really want robots like this to work, so I’ll at least suggest that it could be useful carrying supplies for mountain rescue?

Well it’s about time. Price is actually way better than I was expecting.

that is way way way way way way way way way way way way way way way way way way way way way more than I thought it was going to be. Like can’t you get a full-sized automotive industrial robots for like $30,000? Does this price tag include a lifetime guarantee of free service and technical support? a lot of the promotional material in the last couple years has implied that they would be useful in normal human environments like construction sites. But I can’t see how it could ever be worth that much and those roles with its current capability

I seriously thought this was supposed to be a realistic robot dog… so disappointed.
