This is one of many.  I recommend researching some more of their stuff if you're not familiar with it.  Beware the fake but incredibly well done CGI versions done by Boss Town Dynamics.

It's so.  Boston Dynamics was owned by Google at one point, then sold to Softbank, and a controlling interest was bought by Hyundai just this year if I recall correctly.

Towards the end of the video I found myself search for shot placement locations.

Very cool and very creepy, all at once.

Fracken' Toasters, my .303 SMLE Mk3 should have enough knockdown for one of those. You guys with your scary black rifles better up your game, you won't do much better than my .22 against these guys.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3RIHnK0_NE - the spoof I mentioned in the original post if you haven't seen it.

This is really well done.  It's horrifying the number of people that sent this around the world thinking it was real.  My sister sent it to me.  Thus prompting a flurry of follow ups.  Look at some of the related videos from "legitimate" sources of information.  I weep for humanity.

Wasn't Adam Savage Doc Savage?

Nope... Clark.  So a cousin?

Dalaks are easy to avoid, you just have hide behind something red and they can't see you.

If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.
