The Dog is getting bigger

Annom previously posted about the extraordinary and biomimetic BigDog robot. They haven't been idle and Alpha Dog is the newest and much bigger version.

Especially watching it run was impressive, and of course its recovery from shoves.

The AlphaDog, as they’re calling it, was created to be basically the practical version of BigDog, which, while compelling and scary, was too loud and couldn’t carry enough stuff. AlphaDog, on the other hand, will carry 400 pounds of gear for 20 miles in a day, without needing to be refueled. -Article
