The Big Dog robot is scary, but at least you know you can get away from it by climbing a tree. Not so with the RiSE robot, which climbs poles with ease.
Just imagine a Big Dog with a RiSE on its back. The Big Dog chases you down and then it unleashes the RiSE to finish the job. It's designed by Boston Dynamics, the same maniacs behind the Big Dog, so that might be exactly what they're planning. Watch your backs, bipeds. [Kod*lab via Hacked Gadgets]
