1) It already handles snow-covered broken terrain better than I do.
2) Clearly the folks at Boston Dynamics created it just to have something to screw with. "Wanna pick up a box? Wanna pick up a box? Let me knock it out of your hands and shoot it across the room with this hockey stick. Ha ha, loser."

The whole world is waiting on a breakthrough in portable electrical power generation. If someone gives me a battery with 100 times the power density of any existing battery, I'll give you miracles beyond your wildest dreams.
But this is fundamentally a "hard" problem. A lot of really good people are working on it, because they know how valuable (and I mean in money terms) such a breakthrough would be, but no one even has a theoretical basis for such a thing at this point.
(And "no" includes fuel cells and "super-capacitors". They're not going to do it.)

All that being said, I think that a propane powered generator would allow this thing to fulfill our nightmares.
