BigDog a.k.a. AT-AT, by Boston Dynamics

 

at-atA new amazing robot has been developed by Boston Dynamics. Right after everyone was stunned by the Honda dancer and stairs climber robot, it seems that Boston Dynamics hired George Lucas to give them a hand with the design of this real AT-AT walker.

It´s amazing when the guy kicks the robot or when it steps into ice. The reaction of the full thing is so human-like, that It sometimes seems that two thin guys are hidden inside the machine… like in a halloween costume.

They just have to improve tha 2T kart-like noise and add some StarWars laser sound effects… amazing!
