      Presumably they'll also have to give away their s/w. AFAIK, Boston Dynamics
      have never published anything about any of their algorithms. Of course, it's
      their algorithms that make their robots so good.

      If DARPA are using their Challenges to encourage development in robotics
      then the algorithms will have to be published (as they largely were for the
      Grand Challenge). I wonder what Boston Dynamics will think of that idea!

        Boston Dynamics (the guys who make BigDog), showing off another one of their creations which, according to the article is used to test chemical warfare suits.
