gay robot
 
I just saw the video. I think it's actually two people prancing around with their torsos hidden in the frame. No real robot should dance around like that. How is the enemy supposed to take you seriouly when some queer-prancing gay robot is carrying your purse and/or gadget bag?

Watch the video here

Oh, and that motor-like sound you hear in the video? Yeah, that's the sound of your impending doom. This thing was designed to fight and kill. And they're calling it Big Dog.

What's with the constant farting noise? If it makes that noise all the time, No
wonder people keep trying to kick it over.
Lots will be lost to friendly fire so the rest of the people dont die from
hostile fire.

Is it really worth it to make people maintain that machine so that they can
carry the packs of 2-4 people?

If I were the developers, I'd put a boombox on it playing Herbie Handcock's Rockit.
