    Like The “jumping” ability …

  4. Craig Burton​ Yep !!!

    That is When they lost MyRespect …

    Immature “Folks” with Google’s Investment …

  5. I love that one, Craig Burton. Still cracks me up.

  6. Yeah, the jumping is pretty amazing, Coach G Moore, and yeah that flea bot comes to mind, Hugo Diaz.

  7. Wow! It is fast! Gaits are amazing. The jump is spectacular.

  8. Wow. That will be SO MUCH FUN once it’s armed and patrolling our streets. 🙁

  9. Yeah, it’s kind of hard not letting the mind go there, eh, Marzi Pan?

  10. This seems sort of cool and terrifying at the same time. Mfg will return to the US and be replaced by robots. Displacement of many jobs (manual labor, service, etc) is at hand.

  11. Good point, CJ Liu​.
