    That is very cool. Next we need a 2 legged decoy version to trigger IED's.

    Very cool. How about a lightweight LS3 as a SOF canoe which portages itself.

    Put some wheels on it and it might work.

    looks like a costly way to move some cargo. I can not imagine it is very reliable with all those moving parts. what if caught in a bog, or can it climb over logs, rocks, etc. ?

    I wonder what powers it. Kind of looks steam punk. make a large one that several troops can ride in and you will have the makings of an Imperial Walker from Star Wars fame.
