While I was on vacation last week I came across an article about an
amazing robot being developed as a “pack animal” for soldiers. I

thinking of seeing old World War II movies where two guys are carrying
a stretcher. This is stunning to see! There is an amazing
human/biomimicry component that I just can’t believe … can you tell?
I’m downloading the videos of their other robots now …
