This is one freaky cool robot dog. I have not seen a robot move as well as this one does.

Italdesign Giugiaro released full details of their concept car the Quaranta, just days before it will be unveiled at the Geneva motor show. The amazing part about the car, aside from the supercar looks, is the fact that it uses a mid-mounted...
