Robotic Overlords (and dogs)

Post by cek »

I, for one, welcome our new robotic over-dogs. Although the fact they come from Google makes me a bit nervous.

Now THAT is cool! I think the larger Bot towards the end falls into the Texas steer category. BTW… does this count as your Mye28 dog entry?

:laugh: For a guy who works for Microsoft and Amazon this strikes me as hilarious. Google isn't perfect but I doubt it is any worse than your chosen employers.


I think these "robots" are great. The stair climbing ability alone is amazing

First, to be clear, I don't take any of this seriously enough to be butt hurt about it. I long-ago got over really caring about corporations.

sThanks for the link, that was very interesting.

Let me clarify a few things;

First off, I meant NO personal attack towards you, that was not at all intended.

Second, I view all large Tech corporations with the same degree of trepidation, I was not defending Google.

Third, We best get used to it and find ways to defend ourselves and our privacy 'cuz no one else is going to.

Forth, I view Assange as an information terrorist, sure he doesn't kill folks directly but the things he says and writes most assuredly does/will.

Lastly, I am done with this thread, it will just go to Tailpipe.

Peace pipe?

Peace. Love. Granola.

That's my motto.

Oh, and I fully believe the singularity is near. Not as near as Kurzweil, but within a generation or two.

:laugh: Thanks. Now I have coffee spray all over my laptop.

At least nobody's trying to kick that guy over like that poor dog in the other video.

It's snake looking head on a four legged creatures body is rather alarming. Humans are so incredibly irresponsible to their own race. I'm glad I will be dead soon.

Someone should've warned me not to take a bong hit before watching that. I'm going to need some time alone now.

The arm needs googly eyes.

Everything Boston Dynamics does is both amazing and disturbing to watch. Except the sand flea, I want one of those.

Banana peels? Really? :laugh:

Putting the glass in the dishwasher is a nice trick, but let me know when it's able to tell the difference between dirty & clean. How long until it's able to respond to a voice command like, "Clear the table," without pulling out a blaster?

Gotta wonder what was going on with the Coke can at the end. :D

Fuck me, looks like I need to load some more AP 7.62x51 NATO!

Or buy a .50. Definitely need to buy a .50.
