That science fiction future where robots can do what people and animals do may be closer than you think. Marc Raibert, founder of Boston Dynamics, is developing advanced robots that can gallop like a cheetah, negotiate 10 inches of snow, walk upright on two legs and even open doors and deliver packages. Join Raibert for a live demo of SpotMini, a nimble robot that maps the space around it, handles objects, climbs stairs — and could soon be helping you out around the house.

How lazy do we want to be to get a pet robot..and one question Mr Marc Raibert can you make this robots stab a human or other animals?

John Russell says:

Have any of you guys seen black mirror? This thing looks exactly like the robot dog on that show? You know the one that could put trackers in people, track them based on cell phone frequencies, hack cars, etc. The US military won’t even need a human army. They can just make a robot army. That’s 10x more dangerous. RIP

I love how they treat the robots ??

uhhhhgg !, Ugly, Primitive hunk of Junk !.

This screams Black Mirror. And just in case they’re listening, I for one, accept our robot overlords.

Decades too late …..Copying Gods designs – hardly original!!! — i thought you all scientists didn't believe in God !!!! lol…

Imagine having 10 of these protecting your house at night. I'd feel much safer

Imagine what Ted Talk be like in 2030: Hi, fellow Androids I am the T-1000, your host for this evening. On this stage, we have a human, the last of his kind. Now I'm going to stab him in the eyes audience applauds

I'm not interrested in robots…but…WHEN A ROBOT IS PROGRAMED TO OPEN A DOOR, I'LL CLICK ON IT FASTER THAN I GET A COOKIE

AMAZING!!!!

SPACE ROBOTS

Spend more money on developing construction techniques by robots like (for instance) self driving excavators etc. (and of course all other types of tasks associated with construction). I realise IT'S A HARD ACT TO FOLLOW but if they can pull it off on earth, they could maybe send robots to the moon and beyond to construct real stuff like here on earth (instead of those limited and depressing inflatable pods like with a Mars manned mission). Hold back for a hundred years and develop robotics on earth, first (and it may not even take near that long to make this at least feasible) and it would make us instantly a hundred years AHEAD even just a few decades after they send the first (efficient) construction robots to space. Also they could build (proper) space hotels this way to help pay for the projects by sending up (rich) paying customers. And as we advance the robotics even more more, the sky would be the limit and eventually we could teach the robots to expand and even build more robotics in space. And those new robots could build more stuff and so-on. Of course the BIG CHALLENGE is to even be able to make robots do it, even here on earth (and this would be even more of a challenge in space). But the way robotics are advancing on earth (with driverless cars and even some extremely limited robotic construction techniques already being developed) I don't think this would be as far-fetched that it obviously seems. And imagine how much more efficient this would be instead of trying to do this with humans and the life support needed and being stuck in inflatable pods and virtually nothing else there. That enormous cost could go into other stuff rather that the bullshit needed to keep humans alive in inflatable pods. lol And eventually they could build BIG telescopes on the moon (automatically) by robots and we later come up into the airtight REAL buildings to look through the BIG telescopes.

Black mirror episode comes to my mind.., every time I see one of those things

You like building robots like bill gates like coding windows OS
