Boston Dynamics' Big Dog Robot

Boston Dynamics is an engineering company that specializes in robotics and human simulation. "BigDog" is "the most advanced quadruped robot on earth". It's movements mimic that of various animals with a control system that allows it balance, steer, and navigate. Notice its reflexes and adaptability when someone tries to kick it off balance and as it slips over icy conditions.
