It just depends upon who comes into power. Any programmable device can be programmed to come after YOU.

cool but the battery only lasts 5 backflips then it dies lol, we have at least 500 years before anything like the terminator is made

lol 20 years ago we had dial up internet now we have 100 gigabit lan, and these robots are way less scary than a nuke

If see any of these things coming down the street I'm running them the fuck over with my truck. 10 more years and these are going to be on the ground in most major cities. I guarantee they will start with mundane tasks like parking tickets and slowly ramp up as the tech becomes better.

Black people represent 13 percent of the population but commit over 50 percent of the crime. Check out Colin Flaherty or Jared Taylor's The Color of Crime. I might have saved your life. and enjoy Islam! Stupid goyim.

Andew Burr literally no one said anything about black people... You must be one black-obssesed boi to bring it in a discussion about robots. But then again, ancient philosopher image as a profil pic means one thinks higher of the implications of their ideas than they should

These robots will be an improvement over niggers though... have you seen how much violence blacks are responsible for? Watch Colin Flaherty.

Why would you ever want something like this as a weapon, they're too large, too easy to hit... Micro drones with explosives are much more efficient.

add a quantum computer, a light machine gun, wee bit of armor, better power supply... knock knock

A normal CPU would be much better for a robot than a quantum computer. Quantum =|= better.

Battery densities are rapidly increasing, they already have rideable drones. I suppose one day with low costs, longer range, proven safety, and legislation (registration, licenses, "air highway system" patrols, signs, etc) then "ride on drones" or electric copters could be a common form of transportation. Maybe less than 50 years from now? They could also have wheels, making them a "flying car", but the car aspect would not be the primary part of the design, it would be a rolling drone copter instead. Minimal body compared to cars, and dry warm areas wouldn't need the body. Here are examples of rideable drones already: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYsDcoS5Gt8 They could be adapted to have powered wheels.

Almost as impressive, let’s be honest. The balance and locomotion is no easy feat. We take it for granted. So a robot walking, jumping, let alone backflipping is a feat we shouldn’t understate.

drones are basically flying cars, and with the private companies in the space industry we will have scheduled flights to mars quite soon

then the human rights watch weirdos will create "robot rights watch". Well, because robots have feelings too.

Random Person (4 months ago)
Those films are fiction. As of for now there is no reason to fear AI and when there is AI that wants to kill us (which is unlikely because it will be coded well) then those robots arent the real danger. There are many much easier ways an increasingly intelligent entity could find to kill us.

LOL!!!! they got it!!! I'm glad to have lived long enough to see this amazing leap in robotics come out of a comic book and into the real world of science fact! awesome job in the calculatiions! that's about as good as an athletic human. we don't always land right either. I bet the military has drool running profusely down their necks!!

Still need a long lasting energy source. I'm so glade I'm out of the work force. Can't wait until universal income comes so these people that designed these job killers can pay us to sit around.
Robert Manke (4 months ago)
why do these things have to operate at YOUR version of a life's speed? because they don't. what happens with a change of time scale? so what it operates slower? put it on the moon, a LOT of them on the moon and let them build our fission reactors up there where they can beam down microwave energy for free to a desert on each continent. poof, bye bye oil coal etc centralized power mongers... oh, wait, that last part? the story is still continuing, isn't it?
Willow Alexander (7 months ago)
schwarzfalk I imagine if they were to use the sun and solar panels, it'd be like how solar panels work with houses. The solar panels absorb the energy, enough is stored so the house can use power when its night time, the sun is blocked, in storms. I think it'd be sent to a generator to store the power for future use. I think using the sun is a good idea. but, the robot is different from a house and would have to use a lot more energy in a smaller body, so I'm not sure exactly how it'd work. But please correct me if I'm wrong about something, I'm not an expert on any of this.

schwarzfalk Use your imagination.
Blackfalk (7 months ago)
+Oppenheimer ?well no obviously it won't be continuously connected to the grid that'd defeat the whole purpose of a real autonomous robot - hence my question how long will the battery last on a full charge?
Oppenheimer (7 months ago)
schwarzfalk Do you really think, it will have a constant connection to the power grid in the future. Alot will change to make it a more user-friendly product.

Khymeira Good comment. The overlap between American "patriots" and the Americans getting work done is minimal. Hell, most innovative American companies hire internationally at high rates and open overseas offices. Productive Americans don't need to feel excessively excited about the accomplishments of other people.

It doesn't change a thing if it was doing a backflip, the fact is it failed and that not even hard terrain in those videos lol and they could barely walk let alone walk as fast as humans. If those robots invaded russia where there is way more snow and rough terrain those robots would be barely walking at human speed and humans would be much more efficient. Russia is not a third world country, your standards and understanding of a third world country is way off and Russia is way more safe to travel to and safe in general then an actual third world country. The division into first, second and third world countries dates back to the Cold War, The Western countries formed the first world, the Eastern block the second world and all other countries the third world. But the fact is that the western world is crumbling so those terms should not apply anymore or its not the same as it once was in the old days. I as a person living in a western country even see that's bullshit and whatever propaganda you're fed about russia is not true.
Raptor (7 months ago)
Beast Titan Constantly fall? Based on what? Also, THE ROBOT FELL WHILE DOING A BACKFLIP you utter moron. Do you know how INCREDIBLY difficult that is to achieve? This robot will NOT fall while running or walking. This is the early version of this robot operating in difficult terrain with ease: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVlhMGQgDkY&t=1s Even the early version of this robot could be pushed around by humans and still remain standing, and this version is far more advanced now. Not to mention all these other robots, that are absolutely dominating rough terrain on this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8YjvHYbZ9w Show me a video of a Russian robot operating in rough terrain with fast speed, oh wait, they're operating on a level ground in slow motion. These are the facts, US is by far ahead when it comes to this technology. Russia is a poor 3rd world country.

Haha its good in the hand of Jap or Chinese bcus they will bring benefit to human and not war. And for the development of all wonderful robot prototypes in BD I think its an effort of many people from all over the world that work with Boston Dynamic, so its not just American 100% idea or effort.
