Many of us dream of a friendly domestic robot helping with the housework around the smarthome.
Here’s a video of one of the latest (and scariest) anthropomorphic robots from Google owned, Boston Dynamics.
A new version of Atlas, designed to operate outdoors and inside buildings. It is specialized for mobile manipulation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. It uses sensors in its body and legs to balance and LIDAR and stereo sensors in its head to avoid obstacles, assess the terrain, help with navigation and manipulate objects. This version of Atlas is about 5′ 9″ tall (about a head shorter than the DRC Atlas) and weighs 180 lbs.
Still don’t think we’re at threat from an AI future?
