    So if it can walk, does that mean that instead of giant rims people will be tricking them out by putting giant Air Jordans on them?

    Is wheelchair-bound; has stair-entry-only NYC townhouse.

    It's in the location normally occupied by a link to the article's dedicated discussion thread (where you are now), so I suspect there was an error in the article publication that resulted in the link not appearing.

    That thing is guaranteed to tip over.

    Some people really want to turn that sci-fi future into reality no matter how silly and expensive it looks.

    I think it's a great concept, looks seriously cool, & is designed for very noble causes. Good on Hyundai, & wish I them the best of luck with it.

    Seriously though, this thing is awesome. Can't wait to see rescue teams getting these in their disposal.

    With those rents in NYC, I guess you need to take what you can get :lol:

    But ya, I thought that was a strange choice in renderings.

    Great, now I really need to see the Hyundai jamming to "Uptown Funk".

    This plus Boston Dynamics plus Nissan's Omni-Sensing plus a minigun = Terminator.

    Anybody else wish for a divergent path in history where Karl Benz's first automobile walked instead of rolled? Everything else would stay strictly the same. Just think how much better Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift would have been! The AMG G-Waagon 6x6 would also be much more interesting.

    Minigun? I think you mean "nuclear missile launcher", sir.
