Military drones aren’t just in the air anymore: Meet the pack mule

I found this video of a peculiar but surprisingly effective drone. Created by DARPA, it is meant to be a robotic storage platform, a replacement for a mule or horse in rough terrain.

As shown in the video, it adapts well to uneven ground such as rocks and shrubbery, and can even right itself in case it tips over.

Drones like this are a glimpse into the future of more creative methods of robotic technology, and I am truly looking forward to the next big leap.
