We're One Step Closer to Living In a George Lucas Universe

Coming AT-AT 'cha is the BigDog robot made by the good folks at Boston Dynamics. The demo video on the link provided (no embedding - sorry folks) does a pretty good job of selling the stability and manuverability of this gas-powered mechanical mule. But the cool part of the vid is the opening part where if you squint your eyes, you can almost see the Planet of Endor with this big AT-AT traversing the land.

PS - I know that it was a two legged version of the AT-AT called the AT-ST but to think that Lucas' ideas are not just pure fantasy is still pretty cool.
