Robots are coming... and it's evident in this video they understand concept of hierarchy, and already established a rank & file. 

I've seen this movie before and know where we (people) will end up.

Spoiler alert - we're nowhere near the top; just below a toaster oven, but above a George Foreman Grill - if you must know.

So, I'm not taking any chances... forget super-bright spot lights and HD axles for the truck. 

I'm putting my money towards a EMP device. PM me for group buy details. ;)

Interested! Please share details and estimated costs! 

 

I have no desire to live in a world where my social standing is below that of a toaster!

 

But in all seriousness, this Boston Dynamics stuff is getting scary good.

That is exceptionally creepy!

 

As for my social standing, my toaster oven and George Foreman grill live near each other and no doubt will work together to keep me in my place!  The LR3 will likely get in on the act as well since it's basically a motorized laptop.  Luckily the D1 is still largely AI free so I stand a chance against it.  :)

'07 LR3 HSE/HD - slightly non-stock

'96 D1 - even more non-stock
