BigDog ‘mule’ robot wreaks havoc with herculean throwing arm
Boston Dynamics’ BigDog rough-terrain robot just got even more terrifying, with the addition of a front-mounted arm that lets it toss around cinderblocks like soda cans.

Just make sure you’re not standing right in front when it says, “Fetch!”
