Maybe everyone else has seen this, but I hadn't.  Cool video of two roboquad's (one normal white and gray, and one jet black), being demo'd by Mark Tilden to Shiny Shiny.  Video was taken just after CES this year.  Mark also gives some insight into how the robot was designed, and why it works the way it does.
