DreamForge-Games has the 3D render up of the mechanical Mule they’ve got in the works. Why carry your heavy pack yourself when you can have a robot do it for you?

From the preview:

We like to introduce you to the Cargo Mule, a semi-autonomous mechanical beast of burden. No longer do you need to tie up valuable fighting forces, hauling supplies, ammunition and light support weapons from one end of a battlefield to the other. The (HHM) Hammer Head Mule is capable of following simple commands such as, follow, return to depot and move to that objective. The other option is to utilize the (CCM) Central Command Mule, controlled by your command detachment via a coms link routed back to the Communications Officer. This allows your command squad to control the Mule’s mission, freeing your troopers for the fight.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    For those wondering, there’s actually a real-life version of this in the works, the “Big dog” robot by Boston Dynamics, developed for the military. It looks very similar and is about the size of a, yes, big dog 🙂

  • Haha! I had not seen that video… that’s awesome!

    I felt sorry for it when he kicked it. I know silly right? But somewhere in my mind I saw someone shoving my Saint Bernard and felt bad 😛

    The shot of it dancing on the ice made me chuckle…. Nice find! Thanks for posting.
