It has 4 legs though...that's a big disadvantage for humans. Wake me up when they can make one with 2 legs.

Did anyone watch the video? I am pretty sure that piece of shite was only actually "running" because the treadmill was moving underneath it. Without a treadmill it would just be hopping up and down. 28MPH MY ASS!!!

I like how it has a stabilizing arm attached to it. There is no way that thing could run on land without falling over.

Why is the department of defense spending money on that?
