Boston Dynamics "Spot"

A little off topic from combat but my brother just sent this to me and I was very, very impressed:

Moving with its own onboard power source, climbing stairs, uneven and loose terrain, and adjusting to external unexpected forces.  That is one cool machine.

It sure is, it's kinda funny because my brother was telling me about it earlier today as well. I'd like to see what happens if someone DOES kick it over- How long would it take/could it self right? Either way, it'd be cool to watch as it falls.
