This video shows versions of DARPA and Boston Dynamics robots climbing stairs, walking on a treadmill and doing pushups.

A modified platform resembling these robots is expected to be used as government-funded equipment (GFE) for performers in Tracks B and C of the DARPA Robotics Challenge (http://www.darpa.mil/NewsEvents/Releases/2012/04/10.aspx). The GFE Platform is expected to have two arms, two legs, a torso and a head, and will be physically capable of performing all of the tasks required for the disaster response scenarios scheduled in the Challenge. However, despite the appearance of the robots in the video, the Challenge is decidedly not exclusive to humanoid robot solutions. Any designs are welcome provided they are compatible with shared human-robot environments, compatible with human tools, and compatible with human operators so that a human without expertise in robotics can give commands and confidently anticipate the response.

It is DARPA’s position that achieving true innovation in robotics, and thus success in the Robotics Challenge, will require contributions from communities beyond traditional robotics developers. Hardware, software, modeling and gaming developers are sought to link with emergency response and various science communities to devise novel solutions that enable robots to respond to disasters according to the tasks laid out in DARPA’s announcement (http://go.usa.gov/mVj) for the Challenge.

I'll remember this video in twenty years or so, when I'm sitting in a foxhole clutching my Kalashnikov, laying down cover fire for my squad mates as these filthy fucking bots try to break through our defense line.

I'd like to see DARPA put clothes on one of these and let it loose in the city to see if people notice.

Looks useful…

Kojima tried to warn us.

Why is everyone joking about the end of the world?
This is clearly the next evolution of the military industry,
War is always changing
Que geckos and nanomachines

Were making GRRREAT progress with robotics! At this rate will have Strong AI androids by the year 2045… 4545 CE(AD). I've never seen anything more anthropomorphic!

Хуйня, тут всё на проводах.

Chris T says:

I swear Kojima is a fucking time traveller.
