Introducing WildCat

(YouTube link)

Boston Dynamics has been working on the Cheetah robot for DARPA, and the infernal machine is now unleashed, with its new name WildCat. Watch it use several different gaits as it scoots along the pavement. It even trips and gets back up under its own steam! But …doesn't it seem to be running backwards? The legs appear to bend differently from the way a cat's legs do, as if the robot has one fewer joint. Anyway, it makes enough noise scare anyone within miles. -via Viral Viral Videos

I realize technological advancement is necessary, but the United States has the largest and most advanced military in the world so why do we need this and who is this meant to defend us against. We could cut our defense spending by 75% and still have the best military in the world.
