All they need is skin on this thing, and a laser gun mounted on its shoulder.  ;D

Amazing !

Enjoy ... and imagine the future.  :)

Nice find Russ.

It's obvious when you think about it that step adjustment is necessary to have the hind legs in the correct position for the jump but what I find most interesting is that the adjustment is all done within such a relatively short distance. There are definitely some clever people out there.

I don't suppose we will be around to see it but one day everything will be autonomously controlled.

Concerning drones...
Interesting that new legislation was quickly introduced regarding the operation of drones which effectively stopped the experimental Amazon development of the GPS controlled drone parcel delivery service.

...... and equally amazing to me, the time frame in which this all takes place..

Hey Tweakie,
 ???
Not here my friend .......I see more "elder men" reacting to years of programming than ever before!
AND some of the programming should be against the law. :D ;D
