BigDog and PetMan: The Military’s Creepy Future


Unveiled in 2008 by Boston Dynamics, a company employed by the Department of Defense, BigDog is the future of warfare: a soulless, remote-controlled robot that knows no fear, pain or remorse. Most importantly, it’s creepy as hell.

The same company is also developing a military robot with human characteristics.

Imagine those things strapped with a machine gun and grenades. I don’t know the feeling of being shot by a robot (nor do I want to discover it), but it must suck.



  1. CREEPY as all heck. wow. and to the person who put up that zeitgeist crap…dude, thats a whole lot of semi truth mixed with lies. if your searching for the truth…keep searching.

  2. You know, just because you can do something, doesn't always mean you should (talking about coming up with tech that could be put to evil uses)

  3. things like this usually are in the news but these are not… the four leg machine was creepy as hell! it's balance freaked me out!

  4. You guys should check out the movie WALL-E. I guess they are trying to desensitize our children with this one. It is about a cute lil robot that saves the planet that the humans were about to destroy.

  5. Boston Dynamics are obviously full of extremely intelligent people however what gets me is why not use their funding and big brains to develop something that will help mankind? Rather than coming up with another way for mankind to destroy himself?

    And why did I feel remorse or empathy when BigDog was kicked? What will I feel when I see this thing on TV terrorising a people? Will I think it's cool? Will it be too late to realise that I have been conditioned to accept that I am nothing but an asset? Will I cry for BigDog/PetMan/Cheetah when one is "killed"? Or will I cry for the helpless people who will be mowed down by these machines created by their brethren?

    Am I capable of thinking for myself or is Kurzwell correct – Transhumanism is possible – but on a level where I can be preprogrammed to react how instructed?


    • It's not transhumanist agenda that you or anybody else reacted to the guy kicking the robot, because it's just one more example of a guy being a jerk to something he thought was inferior to himself. You've seen men kick dogs. You've seen men kick women. You've seen white men kick negro slaves. You've seen a dozen cops in riot gear beat the crap out of an unarmed civilian. You've seen american troops humiliating iraqui prisoners in abu ghraib. And now you've seen a man kick the robot he helped make. What you have seen – and reacted to – is a very precise summation of what's wrong with the mindset behind everything that's documented on this site: the failure to treat a being, living or not, with the respect that the sheer fact of its existence warrants.

  6. Ok. The first one was especially creepy as hell. I couldn't help but recall the mechanical beast from Fahrenheit 451. It weirds me out to think That somebody might have to actually fight for their life against a bloody robot. Terminator series anybody?

  7. Wow that is scary but cool at the same time! If only the elite didnt have evil intentions with those they would be a blessing to us, the technology is amazing. Watching this made me think of Will Smith's movie I Robot. We're getting closer to that era, its kinda exciting!!

  8. vigilant i've been reading your feeds for almost a year! i dont no how i stumbled across your webpage, but have to say, your doin it big!!! What I love about your information is that you talk about situations in life in depth and break everything down.

    keep doin your thing x

  9. That dog thing was scary o.o
    Of course it’s going to be used to control people by the illuminati……………
    They want something that will make people scared, so they can take the world and use it for whatever they want.
    Get ready, people. Something big is coming soon. And we won’t like it.
    Just remember to keep God close to you, and death isn’t as bad as people put it to be. That doesn’t mean to kill yourself though – God will choose your fate, and don’t take it from yourself.

  10. Personally the scariest part for me was feeling sympathy for the robot when being kicked, though I knew it was a mere machine.

    • I know right?? It's a freaky feeling, too though – because what if it's more than a mere machine? What if it's just like another illuminati puppet… but in a different form?

  11. The real problem is not these robots by themselves, but when white man merges himself with the robot. We are a sick race. We've become one anyway. And we wonder why people of color are scared witless.

  12. Good Lord, that is creepy. That other robot on their youtube, the climbing one… It's like a giant, war-bringing spider. Terrifying lol.

  13. yeah the big dog has been around for a while now along with a whole load of insane new weapons and gadgets here are a few

    just a few more things to show how advanced weapon and spying tech are rapidly becoming things are on the point of madness now. in a world ravaged by violence and chaos we have these idiots creating more ways to cause pain and death. you would hope they might be working on things to help the earth and mankind but no all the money goes on killing and war SICK IN THE HEAD is all i have to say about them.

  14. at first.. I thought the big dog was just some square box thingo being carried by 2 people ahaha. XD

    but seriously thought it's creepy! it looks like a freaking giant cockroach.

    what if Terminator comes true?? what if the robots kill as all. O.O you never know..

  15. @ PlanetYouranus yep when i saw this reminded me exactly of Metal gear solid. Metal gear solid has so many smart ideas it deals alot about the so called "illuminate" or in mgs they're called "The Patriots". One of the greatest and smartest series in video games i recomend playing them if u are into video games.

    • Bring it to Chicago, in the winter, with the ice on the ground, and the wind blowing, let's see it walk like through that!

  16. Isn't this how Terminator began? I almost felt sorry for the dog robot, the way the handler was knocking it around and how it kept slipping on ice and steep terrain. It's not enough for man to abuse the life that is already here, we've got to make more things to punch around and do our dirty work.

    • You're really anthropomorphizing here, though. Kicking that "dog", which was really just machinery, was akin to dropping an old microwave. I guarantee you it didn't care. This is not Battlestar Galactica we're talking about.

  17. Yeah I saw this a few years ago and it creeped me out then just as much as it creeps me out now. I can't even get through the whole 2 minutes 12 seconds of the BigDog bot. Is it just me or was anyone else reminded of the locusts in Revelations? "Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth; they were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green growth or any tree, but only those of mankind who have not the seal of God upon their foreheads; they were allowed to torture them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torture was like the torture of a scorpion, when it stings a man. And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death will fly from them."

    "In appearance the locusts were like horses arrayed for battle; on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces, their hair like women's hair, and their teeth like lions' teeth; they had scales like iron breastplates, and the noise of their wings was like the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle. They have tails like scorpions, and stings, and their power of hurting men for five months lies in their tails. They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon." (Revelation 9:1-11 RSV)

    The prototype of the BigDog bot could easily be fashioned into a long-haired blond womans face. Keeping with the whole transhumanism theme. It makes sense that the locusts in Revelations would not eat grass if they were actually robots. Maybe I'm reaching, but in my apocalyptic mind-state, I am constantly trying to see things from a biblical perspective.

  18. some of you act like his s**t came out yesterday. machines have been with us for decades. u think the techonology we have is new? our tech stuff they sell at best buy, frys or other gizmo places are OLD! we are sooooo outdated. they sell us what they think is todays tech savvy stuff while making newer technology. thats why in movies do they foreshadow so much futuristic technology and robots etc. they make it seem like there toys here in USA or other parts of the world. imagnine what the GOVERNMENT has already created. right now there are probably huge assembly lines underground being built with robots and being programmed with human minds and intelligence. This world is crazy you have to do more and more research. the lastest iron man already gave a huge foreshadow with the military promotion of the navy, marines, airforce machines. come on ppl. this stuff is old and your commenting like it just happen last night. open your minds!

  19. Makes you think that they will put robots on the battle field and put controls in peoples hand like call of duty! think about it anyone who plays that game can fire a Gun very accurately….it's like training people to fight in a VR realm….


    Also they had this huge version of BigDog that was the size of a horse and when you see it run, it's like WTF that's s**t scary as hell!

    Also, RISE OF THE MACHINES! Google should be morphing into Skynet anyday now…

  21. Say the Bigdog a while back, completely forgot about it. Both those are creepy as f**k, mimicking the movement patterns of human and animals. However, I will say this. If the intention is robotic warfare, at least 1) Innocent soldiers' consciences won't be stained (But douchey robotics operators will) and 2) If s**t goes down between two super powers, let's hope they ONLY use robots. It'd be the serious, real-world equivalent of a war video game.

  22. Are these the real terminator machines, that the first 3 terminator movies have gotten all us used to? I am not counting the 4th movie because I think it sucked, but they will have a terminator 5 movie out some time next year, hopefully they will go back to what works, extremely creepy machines.

    • That’s already been designed and tested too. Search Atlas by Boston Dynamics. He just doesn’t have his weapons yet.

  23. You have to check out the new one DARPA wants: The Cheetah-bot

  24. Thanks to 40+ years of Hollywood movies promoting this kind of stuff as 'cool' people's natural, intelligent, reaction to seeing these killing machines has been almost completely disabled.

    *Without* all that 'best buddy/ father figure' predictive programming (robocop, terminator, transformers, short circuit, star wars etc) and general desensitization to all forms of extreme violence of a 'mechanically induced' nature, these kinds of videos would probably have us all vomiting out of fear like some kind of NWO equivalent of '2 girls 1 cup'.

    I mean seriously, forget that all those 'awesome!' movies had ever existed – now what's the scariest thing most of us will have actually seen in *real life*? A road digger?

    And this robots are just what the public is allowed to see …… imagine what crazy stuff they're working on in secret – not that they couldn't already kill everyone with tanks, drones and fighter jets anyway?

    This videos are why you should never waste a chance to wake up someone in the military or police or a scientist/ engineer, they are the only people who can stop this madness by refusing to follow orders when told to unleash the robots troops to kill the 'enemy' humans. The ordinary people who actually design and make all this crap are probably as ignorant of the NWO etc as anyone else. There is a reason why these jobs are all so compartmentalized …. if they weren't this kind of stuff would never get made.

    Wouldn't you just love to see (insert illuminati would-be tyrant of your choice here) being chased round and round by one of those buggers…. no guns, just a relentless kicking up the arse!

  25. Did this remind anyone else those bipedal robots from Metal Gear Solid 4?

    Imagine one these soulless assaulting machines saying in a mechanical voice "please refrain form moving, or else I'll open fire" while it approaches you, creepy futuristic s*** right here…

    • I noticed some1 else already mentioned it, but this doesnt surprise me because I saw this in metal gear solid 4 sons of the patriots. A game that desensitizes us to the agenda of transhuminsim as well as the idea of a secret society controlling all we do. Those prototypes look exactly like the horrid machines in the video game. they hunt and kill people.

      here is a picture of them.

      • Looks exactly like that.
        What else do video games reveal?
        I am not a gamer in any way, never played , so I do not know what they hold.

      • That's not the point of that game at all. At points the nanomachines inside humans fail people and only those that are not on the network are able to freely function. It's a game series that's more in line with this site's ideas than you think! 🙂

      • Read the bible with an open mind and heart and you will see that God warns us about a lot of the things that are happening in the world right now. You will discover that the NWO is not orchestrated or carried out by a group of elitist but by satan himself using these people as his puppets. satan's antichrist will sit as the head of this one world government and much more death and destruction will follow with him. God exists and he will be back to end this evil, hope you realize it before it's too late. "He (Antichrist) also forced everyone small and great, rich and poor, free and slave to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark which is the name of the beast or the number of his name" Revelations chapter 13:16-17 this is in reference to the FDIC chip they want to implant in humans that will replace all currency. I will be happy to send you more evidence and i encourage you to once again open your mind and heart ,seek God and read the bible

      • And BTW, in the Bible, God warns against sun worship too. And not only sun worship but any other form of man-made religion.

      • …. Idiot.

        You can watch Zeitgeist with an open mind, but not read the bible with one?

        Zeitgeist has falsified many, MANY things. When they compare other religions with Christianity,,, they've got almost all of their facts wrong. Zeitgeist is a pro-New Age movement thing. Stay away from it. Read the bible. It's more accurate than anything you'll ever read.

      • Often scary s**t needs to happen in someone's backyard before they finally wake up and realize that it's happening.

        Also what freaks me out about the dog is that they have mechanical dogs like that in Fahrenheit 451 that hunts people.

        Also Lady Gaga's new video on "Born This Way" is freakish. She dances around like a reptillian and has weird extra terrestrial stuff going on. And Alot of Satanism worship. There should be an article coming up on her.
