The BigDog Robot Can Throw Cinderblocks Now

March 1, 2013 | Samer Kalaf

You may remember seeing the BigDog robot created by Boston Dynamics a couple years ago, when they put this video online and instilled fear into humans of a robot’s capabilities, but back then, the BigDog was only good at running. As evidenced from this new video, the BigDog can now throw cinderblocks and maintain its footing, upgrading this robot from “a little creepy” to “actual threat to humans.” We should fear what Boston Dynamics does next.
