Running robot recovers from roughhousing, recalls Robocalypse

This dainty-hoofed droid has the gait of an octogenarian jogger, the face of Asimo, and the recovery ability of BigDog. Yeah, that’s not a scary combination.

The good news is that it isn’t stable at more than 7 km/h. If you can run faster than that, you’re all right. But if it has a rifle attached to its head, you’re out of luck. And believe me, it’s going to have a rifle attached to its head.
