Government being government, of course they didn't give it a name that cool. What you're seeing there is the Legged Squad Support System, or LS3. Designed to carry up to 400 lbs of equipment, this thing walks, follows, takes voice commands, can navigate between obstacles and roll back up to its feet on the offchance that any of our enemies develop mini-Snowspeeders with tripwires.

Development and testing is continuing throughout 2014. Can ED-209 be far behind?
