Sorry, I've seen much better jumps. I hope everyone has seen Big Dog by now.

Oh yes, I didn't post that one only because they haven't shown it jumping yet (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) Wonder if they have had any success, at least jumping on the site.

EDIT: Actually, I don't really think it's an improvement... they are two separate products. Bid Dog should be used to carry around stuff for the military during operations. A two-legged drone would be able to carry a much lighter weight, so it's not an improvement on that purpose.

well its a improvement in the walking department, as it can handle being unbalanced in a two legged move, vs 4 legs as the big dog has...

either is mostly tech demos, with the big dogs gear carrying possibility mostly a pr sell to DARPA and other investors...
