Don’t watch this video before you go to bed — LittleDog is a DARPA project centered on building a robot that can traverse rough terrain, bringing supplies to soldiers and doing other dangerous things. DARPA’s created a video to show off the LittleDog’s latest updates, including spanning chasms the length of its body.

Yes, it’s incredibly impressive from a technological standpoint. But do you want one of those things lumbering toward you in the middle of the woods at night? Me either.
