The AlphaDog Proto is a lab prototype for the Legged Squad Support System, a robot being developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA and the US Marine Corps. When fully developed the system will carry 400 lbs of payload on 20-mile missions in rough terrain. The first version of the complete robot will be ready in 2012. This video shows early results from the lab where we are developing the control systems and locomotion platform. This lab prototype is powered remotely. AlphaDog will draw power from an internal combustion engine, which we designed to be 10x quieter than BigDog. The field version of AlphaDog will have a sensor head packed with terrain sensors. Boston Dynamics leads a development team that includes AAI Corp, Bell Helicopter, CMU/NREC, FEV, JPL and Woodward HRT. For more information visit us at

I'm always amazed by how they move, how they get their legs move like real dogs' and all. It has a source of power in it, like a machine and I'm just amazed. Wow.

This universe, that consists of the adequate laws, is like a playground God had made especially for us human beings. We can explore all we want. Natural laws are freaking awesome, they were definitely not born themselves by accident .

I like the Redneck Robitics part, where they creep up on an unsuspecting robot from the side and try to tip it over.

All these things show is that there is immense design put into robots. And how much more complicated are those who design said robots. Yet, we're told that we as humans everything in the vastness of space was created by accident with no cause or designer. Sure, sure we were. And this robo-dog is just a tube of aluminum foil that sat around a few hundred million years

One day we will look back at things like thee and think.. wow, we were really bad at making robots once.

We don't need to wait for it to become self aware for this to be freaky. Human flaws and propensity for making bad decisions make this freaky enough.
