I'm sorry, but did anyone else just laugh all the way through that? It's like a headless mountain goat powered by kazoos.

yeah thats not real, honda can't even make sumthing that could be knocked around like that, much less have a sense of balance, why do you think robots have such big feet? if it were real and i came across that in the woods though, i'd be running the other way

I'm STILL laughing at that! Had to watch the video like five times its THAT funny to me... after working 19 hours... wow.

If I saw that thing running through the woods I'd prolly **** myself. Funded by DARPA it likely has a sniper rifle attached to it already. Looks very comical when the guy kicked at it..

Oh, and just because Honda can't do something doesn't make it impossible..

I dont know **** about this, but when it comes to robots im sure 4 leggs is MUCH easier to work with than two. Think about how hard it would be to just get a two legged robot not to fall over

The buzzer is required when the robot is operating autonomously for "safety"

i'm just saying if a company like honda with billions to spend can't create a robot that can be kicked around and still stand i doubt they can. And it just looks fake how the legs move so fast there is a bubble of blur around them

Honda isn't funded by the US Dept. of Defense...

And they are making a bi-pedal robot...not a pack mule.
