Star Wars Fans Rejoice, the US Army Once Had Real-Life AT-ATs (Video Report)

The A.S.V. project was funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), an agency within the U.S. Department of Defense, according to a recent report by The Drive. McGhee and Waldron developed a six-legged hydraulic robot, operated by a single human driver. When working in tandem with the robot’s roughly 17 computers, the driver would be able to steer each step of the six moving legs.
