    So essentially... bad doggy?
    The technology that powers it need a big step forward before this would be practically useful. Either a big improvement in batteries, or some other means of getting power out of a liquid like petrol or liquid hydrogen that doesn't involve a combustion engine.
    The way they have gotten the legs to work and walk around over rough terrain is still very impressive though.
