They are clearly getting much better at doing this. Now we must decide just what can be done with this platform. It clearly provides creditable rough surface mobility.
Now we have to design it to handle rider packs that can supply practical usefulness. I am sure that the military will have ample suggestions there, even if it is as a suicide bomber. However drone weapon systems also work here.
Commercial use is a little less easy simply because we engineer roughness out of our environment.
