Boston Dynamics is close to delivering the break dancing robots I never knew I always wanted.
What a wonderful time to be alive (for two or three years before ultimately they adapt this tech into weaponized murderbots)!
@benj_red Will I be able to afford to have myself soldered into one of these when I'm too old to walk?
@benj_red Enjoy for now, in a couple of years he will be knocking at your door asking for John Connor
@benj_red I think its more than 2-3 probably about 5-20 years before we get murderbots on this chassis.
@benj_red This is one of those days where I suddenly realize we are significantly closer to the cyberpunk future than we were the year before.
@Karneolius yes, it looks like that’s what they’re going for here. They’ll probably need to tighten-up the design a bit before it’s ready for the dance floor.
Bang on. These are the robot cops of the future. Nothing good will come of this, as very little good has come of most tech lately.
@benj_red My bank, the Triodos Bank, does not invest in Google, because Google owned Boston Dynamics and Boston Dyn serves the military.
