It's called "Big Dog."  It's a program run by a Massachusetts firm of engineers funded by DARPA to make a four legged all terrain robot that can carry large loads over long distances, or track targets and destroy them (in the future).  They also have "Little Dog" which is a robot about the size of a loaf of bread that looks similar to this.  It's being developed for delivering ordinance and for surveillance.     
   
Obviously its still in early development, but just wait 10 years...  Kind of like a drone on land almost.  Creepy too.   
   
Sorry for the great wall of text, just spreading knowledge I guess.
