BigDog robot tosses cinderblocks like tennisballs. What do you mean why?

Boston Dynamics have built the rather famous BigDog walking robot. Originally designed as an equipmnet carrying all-terrain robot, the boys in the lab decided to give it a little add-on. And hey presto, the robot can now fling around cinderblocks in a way that can really be summed up in the words ‘terrifying’ and ‘awesome’. OK, you could add that it looks a bit bambiesque as well 🙂
