Is the Military Making a Robotic Horse?

It looks like a head-less robotic horse! What is it? Well, it’s a robot designed to carry heavy equipment for soldiers and we have a video of it in action!

The Marine Corps Warfighting Lab in partnership with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and Boston Dynamic tested an autonomous robot late last year. The final version is still 2 years away, but as you can see in the video, it appears to be working pretty well already.

Unfortunately, these are NOT designed for horseback riding, but why would you want a robot when you can have the real thing here at Parklane?
