I was on the phone with my homie S.bot earlier.
She is all things geeky. An Information Architect,
she hangs out at MIT taking free workshops on nerdy

Then she told me to Google Boost Dynamics.
I saw this robot and it gave me the creeps.
Scarier then 10 Freddy Kreugers.
I immediately knew that it was a military robot.

The Big Dog is funded by The Defense Advanced Research
Projects Agency, which is under the Department of Defense.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, your tax dollars at work.
What do you think of the Big Dog?
