Why has this been posted *again*?
No, I can't be bothered to look for the original. We've all seen it.

#2 I think the others have all be gas like the end of the video, this one is electric/battery and hence can be used indoors since they have no fumes/CO2.

#2 Its the newest version..Boston Dynamics uploaded this video on Feb 9, 2015
So its rather an update then a repost =)

I wonder what that spinning thing on his head is. A 360 Camera/radar module? The Gyroscope? For sure its weak point on the battlefield.

#4 I take that on the chin... :)
I *have* seen this before, and not too recently, but maybe on Youtube rather than on Snotr.

#7 Boston Dynamics only just released this video to youtube and the public on Feb 9 2015 . Maybe you are thinking of one of spot's older brothers. :)

I don't understand, they all kick it to the sides where the armor is thicker. I would aim straight for that laser finder.. one good kick and it's down for good.
