BigDog Wishes You A Happy Holiday

Posted by on December 23, 2015

BigDog is kind of creepy. But apparently even a creepy four-legged robot that sounds like a dying housefly can take a moment to celebrate the holidays.

In the above video, Boston Dynamics shows off three – three! – of their quadruped BigDogs hauling what appears to be Mrs. Claus, wishing everyone a happy holiday.

Reindeer, you’d better watch out.

As stated on the bot’s official webpage, BigDog is a “rough-terrain robot that walks, runs, climbs, and carries heavy loads,” and will undoubtedly be our opposition’s go-to pack mule during the upcoming robot apocalypse.
