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.

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.

Good thing EMPs exist
Jouni Toivola Imagine running from your life from that shit,it has perfect night vision, heat detection, infrared, the most sensitive kinneck sensor able to detect your liver, your heart location. It never miss and run just as fast as you do, plus no human empathy. We need to get prepared for that

Compared to this advanced technology, I assume that this kind of additional modification would just be an easiest part to do. Pentagon just requests Google permission to do that.

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. Those attention-seeking hypocrites are the reason why we now live in a criminal-friendly society. I say program these robots to kill them, including the animal rights activists. whatta bunch of pussies

And what’s weirder still, is the fact most people seem totally oblivious to it all. Some sort of ultimate denial. And I’m only referring to the small part we’re allowed to know about.

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.
Willow Alexander (1 month 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.
schwarzfalk (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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.

Not really, there's lots of robots around the world. Japan has some cool ones. Check out the new one Toyota built, T-HR3...talk about a Terminator name.
zul amal (1 month ago)
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.
