Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Regarding ground-based automated military stuff, here's a link to the Google Video version of a 3 minute movie of "BigDog" -- the US military's prancing, agile, prototype pack-animal.

There's a higher-resolution 11.5 Meg wmv file that you can download and play again and again. Amaze your friends!

I showed it to a guest today; she away with shivers, asking where she could download a copy for herself. A quote: "I feel like I've seen the future, and I'm not sure I like it."

(I linked this in an earlier diary. The context page for the video is Boston Dynamics: BigDog -- The Most Advanced Quadruped Robot on Earth.)
