In the clip, the creepy figure runs quickly across the ground, with several team members following behind. Within seconds, it has moved out of sight of the video camera as men holding electronic tablets and other expensive-looking gadgets bring up the rear. It is believed that the robot was being tested by Boston Dynamics.

Scientists working on the robot were there to monitor the device and drive a utility task vehicle that carries the robot's power systems. According to reports, Boston Dynamics have used the same forest in the past, so it is not unusual to come across strange metal objects parading through the trees.
