boston dynamics

This video was shared with me like 200 times, so I figured I better get off my ass and post it:

I think the main reason it was spread around is because not even one person whose instagram page I saw put up a short clip of the video credited Corridor Digital, and they cropped out the “bosstown dynamics” watermark.  Judging by the comments almost everyone thought it was real.  That just goes to show what a good job Corridor Digital does with these videos.  Check this out and this video too if you want to see how they made the video.  Looks like a LOT of work.

For those of you who think that a robot being that skilled is far fetched.  These next two videos are from the real Boston Dynamics:

Thoughts?

The Skynet joke has been beaten to death… for real though, we’re all dead. This thing is SHOCKINGLY agile:

The Boston Dynamics Atlas 😬.  From now on I only am saying good things about robots, as a precaution for when they eventually create an Ai to see who to kill first.

I really need one of these things to come hiking with me, so it can be on high alert and fight bears or cougars if the need arises.  You just know that robot could probably pick a bear up and throw it through a tree.  The visual I just got LOL… I’d just be standing there all smug in the forest eating a trail snack like “I told you bear… don’t start shit, there won’t be no shit.”

Thoughts?

Hmmmm problematic on a few levels:

The full size dog thing was also terrifying.  Remember the Christmas video?

0:43 – Uhhhh.  That quick duck under the table was creepy.

0:49 – Whose robot is this? LOL Who let this slide? LOL

1:13 – Hmmm so it puts away dishes and cleans up garbage?  Maybe my mind is being changed haha.

data-startrek1:29 – LOLOLOL this actually happened.  Boston Dynamics is the GOAT for this one.  I bet this robodog will remember this though, and won’t take being embarrassed in front of millions of people on the internet lightly.

2:23 – I think robodog almost glitched, snapped and killed that guy.

Thoughts?

Set in a near future, technology-reliant society that pits man against killing machines:

Rick-James-Dave-ChappelleOoooooo ya.  May 16th is the UK release date, I don’t see the USA release date but I hope it’s happening soon because I want to see this movie.

<— This would be my face just before a robot is about to kill me.  My legs would coincidentally probably also be like linguini.

This feels eerily like the Boston Dynamics humanesque robot I posted a couple days ago.  Thoughts?

Uhhhhhhhh well this is nightmare material. They call it Atlas:

0:50 – haha I LOL’d.  Smooth recovery though.

1:19 – Put a little twist in her hips ’cause we’re watching.

1:37 – You want to get killed first by this new smart robot?  Because that’s how you get killed first Ron. *smfh*

2:16 – So crisp.  10/10

Mother-Of-God-MemeJudging by this video, looks like DARPA has come a long way in less than a year.  Remember the DARPA Robot World championship video I posted?  Those robots basically all sucked compared to this new one.

I’m not sure what creeps me out more, these new human looking robots or the creepy animal ones they always had before.

Thoughts?  You officially going to curb your robot shit talking as of today?  God knows these things and Skynet in general are listening and keeping track and prioritizing kills.

haha wow this is creepy:

Darpa-Boston-Dynamics-ReindeerI love the staccato / Christmas cheer in its step.  We have seen that pack carrying robot a million times before, but it’s creepy every single time.  DARPA / Boston Dynamics needs to hurry up and mount some mini guns on those things though and bless us with some epic YouTube slow motion footage.

Merry Christmas everyone!
