Submission + - BigDog grows into LS3 (robots.net)

savuporo writes: Well known ( and spoofed ) Boston Dynamics BigDog prototype now has a bigger brother named "LS3" or Legged Squad Support System. It's intended to carry heavy loads for long treks and have enough autonomy to follow soldiers around, listen to voice commands and navigate autonomously. More at DARPA press release, and the obligatory Youtube clip. It's a tad noisier than a mule.
