Big Dog

Except that it's been circulating on the web, this clip has very little to do with the web per se. But dang is it a neat hack. Or really, a whole bunch of painstakingly assembled neat hacks.

Keep in mind that the beast is carrying about 150 kilos (340 lb) for most of the clip.


If you're like me, you probably winced when the guy tried to kick the beast over, and cheered (at least inwardly) when it got back up. Empathy toward anything that shows goal-directed behavior appears to reside in yet another deep-seated brain circuit ...
