If you have a couple of minutes and enjoy good music, the video is worth watching.  The technology used with these robots is quite impressive.  I enjoy technology as much as the next person, but the capabilities of these robots are a wee bit concerning.  Maybe Lucas was onto something.  I would love to see these robots deployed in en masse in real life situations…like fighting forest fires.  Until then, I guess we will have to settle for backflips, the mashed potato, and the twist.
