Cool. But I bet the independent power pack only lasts like five minutes or something totally unpractical. Good start, though. I, for one, welcome our creepy spider-dog robotic overlords.

Hopefully they aren't going to use it to sneak up on anyone. That sound is annoying. It gets around pretty well for walking like a dog whose cruel owner has put shocks on its feet.

Reminds me of the dog robot that turned evil from "Mission to Mars" or was it "Red Planet". One of those bad Mars Sci Fi movies that came out in 2000.

Reminds me of some kind of Silent Hill monster abomination, complete with bizarre sound effect.
