But.

Some of the first steps really are here:

This thing is an amazing mimic of evolved 4 legged motion. Late in the video, it even gallops and hops/jumps similar to a horse.

Also, it's kinda creepy...

I would like to note that the development of improved prosthetic devices had given people a better understanding of how to mimic things like joints. Making this sort of device more and more possible. Maybe even leading to more realistic robots modeled on humans.

Im hanging back on the excitement until robotics goes on to cybernetics and then carbon copy cloning.

A few of me running around, experiencing life then returning to some sort of docking station to merge the gathered knowledge/experiences, rinse and repeat.

It is very likely I will need some sort of time hopping device to ever see this future though. Jesus what are these scientists and engineers waiting for. Future me already!
