Why didn't they kick this one?

It looks like famous mechanical mule BigDog now has a big brother. The new brainchild of DARPA and Boston Dynamics is on the loose, and this time AlphaDog seems to want to follow you home. Too bad there's no video of kicking the poor robot this time. That was the best part of BigDog!

We love our robots around here, and would never abuse a robot in such a way. Think about how handy one would be, now that your 3DS is in full XL mode! From hot Transformers news to Gothicmade epicness, there was no shortage of robot action on the network.
