They are one of the three groups competing in the DARPA Exoskeletons for Human Performance Augmentation study. The other two being the wholly private SARCOS company (who previously built robot animations for museaums, amusement parks, and movies) and the Oak Ridge National Labs.
Neither SARCOS or Oak Ridge publish info on their projects, one to keep industrial secrets, the other because of national security laws. So Berkeley gets all the attention.
More images and video clips of the machine walking are on their web page.
