Submission + - DARPA funding real Star Wars AT-AT walkers (

machinehead39 writes: Here's a cool video. Boston Dynamics received funding from DARPA to develop what looks like a real Empire Strikes Back AT-AT walker. At first glance this small prototype looks fake, but keep watching. It's almost spooky. You feel bad for it it when the guy gives it a kick. It'll be interesting to see what the military uses these robots for. This thing's too cool not to be developed all the way.
