If it is indeed a viral marketing stunt, there are going to be a lot of irritated people.

Thank you Grey Havoc, that was awesome.
Believe someone at BAE even once believed in mecha based on a design seen on this forum.. Most believe Mecha believers are nuts.. others see them as inevitable.

Again I wonder how is it Boston Dynamics robots are so quick compared to everyone else.  This indicates they are processing dynamic balancing equations in real time and have very low latency actuators or predictive models which let them guess and refine actions as they arise.

Go to 3:45 mark in the video to see more on Handle with commentary from Marc Raibert.  There is also some new footage of their other robots.

Another slow robot.  If I was a journalist I might ask one of the researchers what they think is the key to faster movement.
