DARPA Legged Squad Support System (LS3)

What you see above is definitely not new, but it shows off other capabilities of the upcoming DARPA Legged Squad Support System (LS3) that we have not been privy to before. The ultimate goal of the LS3 program is to demonstrate the usefulness of a legged robot which is capable of helping squad members carry their gear, following them autonomously through rugged terrain without missing a beat. Heck, the LS3 is also said to be able to interpret verbal and visual commands, and you can be sure that it will follow orders unquestioningly. I would assume that there might be the possibility of a remote controlled option just in case the situation does not make it possible for you to perform hand signals or shout out a command. I am sure the troops on the ground will be more than pleased to see the DARPA Legged Squad Support System (LS3) being operational soon, considering the amount of gear that they have to tote around is no laughing matter.
