I’m pretty sure I saw an episode of Black Mirror recently that had four legged robots that were able to do things. This reminded me of that way too much and it didn’t end well for the people involved. This is a video from Boston Dynamics, a company that specialises in robotic design. They already have their robot “Big Dog” working for the military already, doing God only knows what. This one I believe is called a “SpotMini”. Considering where we were 10 years ago to where we are now in regards to AI and robots that can open doors for their mates; surely this means the world will soon end.
It’s only a matter of time because they put AI in a robot. Robot gets angry. Robot takes over the world. I just hope I’ll be dead before that happens. “But you’ll be alive for another 50 years!” Not at the rate I’m going. I’ll be lucky to last another 50 minutes! Too be fair to Boston Dynamics though, the design of this robot is beautiful. All it needs is a head attachment and we can start selling them to children.
What? You have a real dog? Yeah well… this one will probably last more than 15 years. AND it opens doors.
