    Remembering the source of funding for Boston Dynamics 'Big Dog' project, I wondered if this video would turn into a Futurama Christmas episode. I guess I don't find military robots with antlers any more festive than tanks with tinsel.

    Did the video cut out just before the dogs became self aware and blew the sleigh to bits?
