The Legged Squad Support System (LS3) from Boston Dynamics went through further testing recently by the United States Army during a drill in Hawaii.

The LS3, commonly referred to as the mule robot, is expected to be used by the Marines in order to carry equipment and heavy loads up to 400 lbs.

Incredibly, the LS3 will follow one soldier wearing a specific sensor, almost like a dog following his/her owner all over the place, for 20 miles before it needs to be refueled.

And good luck with knocking this beast of a robot over…
