VIDEO: "DRAGON WALK" BY THE NOBELMEN STARRING BIG DOG & DARPA LS3 ATV ROBOTS!

Rate: 1 Flag
WHY?

Because I so love these totally insane all-terrain robots developed by Boston Dynamics and DARPA, and felt they really needed to be set to music. The song is by Milwaukee, Wisconsin's own Nobelmen, the winners of the WOKY-AM (my "home station," the Mighty 92 back inna day) "First Rock Band In Milwaukee" contest in the late-'50s. They made this one awesome gritty instrumental 45 on USA Records and were never heard from again. The robots seem to dig it. Please to enjoy!

Cute post!

I too love the robots. The are incredible!

The band sounded like a bunch of high-school kids from the 50's who weren't yet quite sure which end of a guitar the fret-board was on. (My buddy's band for instance)

"R" for robots!

and R for Rock n Roll! ;)
