 Th  is thing is freakily realistic (apart from the bee in a jar effect)  Wait till it walks on ice... And they kick it! Thats gotta be a case of robot cruelty.

Its a DARPA project, the end goal is to have it hump round supplies and gear for troops. They kicked it to help demonstrate its dynamic stability, most of the video covers its abilitiy to maintain its balance.

Posting Youtube version here.  Absolutely eerie video - and the fact that it does it's balancing act with 300 lbs extra weight is just amazing.
