Robots Deployed To Afghanistan
The pentagon has called out its new weapon to send into battle in Afghanistan – a pack of robotic “BigDogs”.
The state-of-the-art headless four-legged metal beasts have been designed to navigate the country’s treacherous terrain. And – as it leaps towards the enemy on animal-inspired articulated legs – the BigDog also lets off an eerie lawnmower buzz. Creators Boston Dynamics claim BigDog can run as fast as four miles per hour, walk slowly, lie down and climb slopes up to 35 degrees.
