This parkour robot overlord is like something out of 'Terminator.'

It's worst then terminator because it's real and all the data could be edited to work on other robotic systems. 36 now when i was 16 i could remember exports saying robots would never be able to walk as the balance was to complex for robots this thing doing it on wheels for god sake. what the hell is the next 20 years going to bring us exciting but also very scary at the same time.

Someone build this technology into Prof. Stephen Hawking's wheelchair, because after all he has done, the guy deserves some fun.

I know everyone's first thought is terminator, but what if, when it becomes sentient, it's just a sassy dancer? Wouldn't that fantastic?

Yeah....but is it dtf?

This is chassis of future military robots) please don't be naive, it's constructing for war) And it's not for dance, it's mission to be better than human for killing human.

Honestly, my brain can't help but look at the robot doing all of this backwards. Play the video in reverse and you'll understand what I mean. Otherwise, great job Boston robotics!

When humanity is fighting for survival against the machines we can thank robotic engineers for there oh so lovely creations 😉

Alan Drane 7 months ago 45

Wow, imagine that technology combined with wheel chair mechanics. People confined to wheel chairs could have access to a lot more places and have some recreation fun too.

I can't wait to see such machines being used to find missing people in the woods or in open areas at night ... with a night camera would become something very useful !!

Everyone's all threatened by a possible robot overlord when all I see is a robot that can run for 45 minutes on a battery that needs an overnight charge to be full.

Why is the first thing that comes to anyone's mind regarding technology about war (calling it a "warrior)? Is there NOTHING else this thing could be doing besides enforcing someone's control over people and resources? Nothing?

I suggest we humans ' start building a healthy supply of ( Iron Man ) suits in case these Machines and A.I. start to Get any cute ideas ' #thewritingsonthawall!

Now they can climb snowy mountains with rough terrain. It could be a handy tool. It could be a deadly weapon. It could be a spoiled child's toy. I'd like to try it. (I should probably restructure my paragraph to cast me in a better light. It looks as if I'm saying that I'm a "spoiled child," Lol).

I love how all the boston dynamics videos end with the robots going outside like "hey, we're releasing this into the wild now. have fun little guy!"

It is irresponsible to use words such as "overlord", "terrifying", etc. Media have the power to sway opinion. Rather than discuss the applications of this robot, you are scaring readers unnecessarily.

Randy L. Dixon Rivera 7 months ago 5

Holy Cow! Now that's a vast improvement since the tethered humanoid robots just a few years back! Or even the 4 legged beasts of burden that have escaped their tethers to climb rocky hills. These new robots are a bit intimidating and not looking clumsy or slow at all? Wow! The game just got real! AND A BIT SCARY!

The 4th industrial revolution has already started and millions of jobs and entire industries will become obsolete overnight. Most people have no idea how radical and abrupt this transformation is going to be. Autonomous cars will be the first big game changer, then one after another current technologies will instantly become obsolete.

We could program a robotic hand that uses sensory nuance to sew and save millions of children from labor camps. Oh, never mind we're making.. super deer?

Why is it called a Parkour Robot? It should just be called Robot That Goes Back and Forth, Spins Around, and Can jump/ roll Over Things.

Ther goes warehouse jobs...port jobs...all basic manual labour jobs....just add ai and program logic with reasoning tables...arm it and run...Arnolds here already...hes got a tank!!

What a beautiful piece of technology... Seeing a machine able to do such stunts brings overwhelming emotions of appreciation and gratitude for the work that would have gone to make bare piece of metal to come alive... The integration of robotics and AI and a knowledge sharing between scientific community can usher the future of intelligent machines helping mankind... Such machines can build us colonies on Moon and Mars...

Tech is quickly out pacing mens abilitys to adapt to the changes. Question : What will you do to earn a living when EVERYTHING is automated? Everything.... Never underestimate the greed of some men. The world had better decide quick on what to do with the billions of people who have no jobs.

Why is it exciting. Much better to see humans do this on roller blades, natures machine. This robot era is a waste of time and can only lead to more and more job cuts in roles that actually matter. Why not plough the money that went into this, into cancer research or cures for dementia etc. The human race is manufacturing a lazy future and dependance on machines, we are our own worst enemy.
