Out of all the things I have witnessed in this, there is only one thing I don't understand.

Why is this in morbid channel?

Just so I can push them all onto a slippery surface and watch them struggle to stand up.

OK, 2 questions. 1. If it IS knocked down or on to its back can it get up? 2. What use is it? It's to noisy for recon, even as a pack drone for a regular patrol it makes to much noise. Building a electric (quite) version is harder than it sounds, so this seems like a wast of money.

"Our mission at Boston Dynamics is to develop a new breed of rough-terrain robots that capture the mobility, autonomy and speed of living creatures. Such robots will travel in outdoor terrain that is too steep, rutted, rocky, wet, muddy, and snowy for conventional vehicles. They will travel in cities and in our homes, doing chores and providing care, where steps, stairways and household clutter limit the utility of wheeled vehicles. Robots meeting these goals will have terrain sensors, sophisticated computing and power systems, advanced actuators and dynamic controls. Less than half the Earth's landmass is accessible to wheeled
and tracked vehicles, yet people and animals can go almost anywhere on Earth. This situation motivates the development of robot vehicles that use legs for their locomotion, thereby embracing nature’s mobility solution. The goal is to achieve
animal-like mobility on rough and rugged terrain, terrain too difficult for any existing vehicle." As for being knocked down, I have no idea. It seems to withstand the force of a Spartan-like kick so it should be alright. this video is old though so they have made some changes to it, including making it less noisy.

Not a thing you'd want to take on covert operations.
