    <div class='quotetop'></div><div class='quotemain'>A four-legged robot called BigDog can carry more than 88 pounds, and doesn't lose its balance -- even if you KICK IT. It's being developed by Boston Dynamics for the U.S. military. Of course, a real mule can carry twice that much, never falls down and doesn't need its batteries charged. But, hey, this is the Pentagon -- why use a mule when a robot can do half the work at a million times the cost. I want one! Here comes the VIDEO!</div>

    It's a walking military robot. The prototype can carry around 88 pounds, and that's just the prototype! :ninja:

    Yeah, it really would be faster on wheels, but the point is that it can move on terrain that wheels don't work so well on.
