|I think Boston Dynamics missed a golden PR opportunity here.
Imagine this: give this robot a water pistol (AKA a squirt gun) and have "it" chase the staff around in an enclosed area. The vid would go viral
worldwide overnight [not to mention, by the way, of getting the message across subliminally (hopefully) what's in store for us humans if we keep sitting on our hands]!!!!

|Very Impressive Video Of The State Of The Art Of A Full Size Robot
Google-owned robotics firm Boston Dynamics has released new footage of its Atlas humanoid.
The robot, which is an upgrade from the previous version, is able to withstand the best efforts of its carers to push it over and stop it
Run time: 1:40
If there continues to be a problem with some folk's ability to view videos, try YouTube and search words such as 'Atlas humanoid', and ones that
have been uploaded in the last day or so.
As you will see, this robot is not tethered to a power source (but NO mention of run time either). And although there is a part of this video of this
robot traipsing through a small amount of snow, the next level of upgrade needs to be one that is all weather capable (and probably nighttime light
level capable too, i. e., pitch black).
My kudos to all the engineers that built this thing--well done!
PS: to Amazon.com--don't bother with airborne drones. Use one of these things to run (literally) over to a customer's house to deliver a package.
