Boston Dynamic's DARPA Legged Squad Support System (LS3) -- formerly called the AlphaDog -- has come a long way since I've first looked at it and the improvements are remarkable. Can't wait to have my own following me around.

This video depicts field testing of the DARPA Legged Squad Support System (LS3). The goal of the LS3 program is to demonstrate that a legged robot can unburden dismounted squad members by carrying their gear, autonomously following them through rugged terrain, and interpreting verbal and visual commands.
