DARPA Gives $32 Million For A Bigger Big Dog

DARPA Gives $32 Million For A Bigger Big Dog
After years of development and several creepy videos, Boston Dynamics' Big Dog Robot is scheduled to get bigger. Working off a $32 million request from DARPA and the Marine Corps, Boston Dynamics has developed a souped-up version of the quadrupedal Big Dog robot called the the Legged Squad Support System (LS3). This new robot will have a longer range, heavier carrying capacity, and more agility than its predecessor.
