sure but if you ever watched a dog sprinting in timelapse you'll see the dog has a pretty long phase of not touching the ground at all... and there's still a long way to go for boston dynamics xD
Theirs still have huge problems with jumping ^^ (sctually just the landing is a problem. So hey, they're 50% done!)

apparently the art of getting something to run with its feet not touching the ground involves neural nets

a programmer friend told me once (a physics programmer expert)

Yes :P. It's a meme about the controversy surrounding one of the 1977 scene that got changed in the 1997 (and later) versions of A New Hope, where Han originally was seen as shooting first, then 20 years later the scene was altered so that Greedo fires a shot just before Han does. Many Star Wars fans were upset at this change and the many others.

Anyway those robots are amazing, especially the SpotMini

That's what the joke/controversy is about. George Lucas changed it to avoid making him appear as a cold-blooded killer, but at the same time it fits the character and the hardcore fans *hate* ALL modifications that were made to the movies after the initial theatrical release.

Also you stole my joke. D:
