It does the dishes, attach a vacuum and I'm sold.   I'll buy two, if they one big enough I can ride.   A horse that doesn't bite, kick or throw you off, because it saw a bag.  But still goes over trails like a horse.  Hope they make them water proof.   We're building a whole new world with robotics, I don't know whether to love it or fear it.

These things could be a boon to disabled people and the elderly.

Well that's just plain creepy.  I mean, if you're going to make a robot dog, make it look like a dog.  Who would want that thing as a pet?  Maybe I just don't get people.

"..and the robot dogs went on to be a great benefit to mankind, assisting the elderly and saving men from hostile environments. A machine gun was never attached to it's back and it was never used for military campaigns or domestic crowd control.     THE END"

All the pieces of a Terminator future are here in their infancy, someone just needs to refine them a bit and slap them together. We are witnessing the obsolescence of humanity in slow motion...

And THIS is what you use when the robot dog gets temperamental...

Well BigDog was designed for the U.S military, so this one is probably similar. More function over form.

It will be interesting to see the specs compared, and how much they were able to reduce noise.

If it has a drone that can lift off, directed by the dog only, and can destroy itself and the dog, l am sold.

K9 can shoot enemies such as Daleks with lasers and, since he regenerated in 2009, can fly.

These guys are making some awesome, and somewhat scary tech. It wasn't all that long ago the challenge was making a bot that could navigate a flat level surface without falling. Now they can navigate rough terrain, right themselves, recover dropped items. 

Can you imagine backpacking with all the comforts of home hauled on your "dog" while you saunter along with just a walking stick or even ride it too? Search and rescue, these things could take you right to a transponder to find hikers or avalanche victims. Medivac through rough terrain and weather to a suitable landing area. 

So many applications beyond military ones, but of course the military needs drive the industry, or at least have up until recently. Lots of ultra rich geeks making toy rockets and robots these days.

The Sarah Jane Chronicles, I believe, not actually the Dr Who series. ??? At least for K9-mark 4. The one that could hover/fly.
