Default Okay, so this freak me out. And you?

Big Dog reminds me of Amy in Val Kilmers Red Planet.

And Rise reminds me of the Spider Bots in Minority Report.

Did you click on the bots? Did you watch the vids?

Are you not even a little freaked out by these?

How about this? Imagine Big Dog but he has, I dunno, a pair of 50 caliber ( or bigger) rifles mounted to each side. And the packs it totes are ammo bags. Now picture this thing running in packs as border patrol.

Ha. That'll teach all the illeagal immigrant, er, CANADIANS that come here and steal our jobs, healthcare, and tax dollars.

OH I've seen all those videos before. I think if I were to see/hear some of those Big Dogs coming at me in the forest in the middle of the night I would crap myself while running away. Something unearthly about the whine they make and the completely natural movements....
