These Robots From Boston Dynamics Even Terrifies Google

Are you afraid that robots are going to take over? If so, you may feel a bit of trepidation as you learn about the new robots which have been created by Boston Dynamics. These bots are getting lots of press and general fanfare and we're going to look at them in more detail today! First off, you should know that Boston Dynamics have named their latest robot, Atlas.

This robot design is a humanoid model and it has plenty of capabilities, including the ability to walk in the snow and to recover from kicks. Google's powers-that-be was affiliated with Boston Dynamics. However, online feedback about Atlas has pushed them away from the company.

Why? Well, in a nutshell, this robot scares the hell out of people! While techies are excited about the robot's human-like qualities, regular Joes are freaking out and Google staff are concerned about bad PR which relates to the connection between Boston Dynamics and Google.

 

Google Wants to Cut the Robot Production Company Loose

A video featuring the robot's exploits appeared online and this triggered a storm of comments from frightened viewers. Now, Google is detaching from Boston Dynamics. Google tends to have a squeaky-clean image and the company is known for its positive corporate culture. Google doesn't need Boston Dynamics in order to make money and that's the bottom line. So, they've cut the robot production company loose. They are in the process of finding a buyer for the company, which they currently own.

We've all watched movies, such as Terminator, Ex Machina and I, Robot, which are designed to show us the risk factors associated with robotic machines. These films are probably one good reason why some people fear Atlas and all that this ultra-modern and the scarily human robot can do!

Elon Musk Has Warned about Giving Robots Too Much Artificial Intelligence

The truth is that there may be some basis to this fear. After all, rocket creator and modern-day Da Vinci, Elon Musk, has cautioned tech innovators about giving robots too much artificial intelligence. He feels that at some point the future, robots will begin to develop on their own and may become our masters, rather than our slaves.

Boston Dynamics is unafraid and it's committed to building robots which push the envelope. The company is also known for a producing a robot canine named Spot, as well as Cheetah, which is a robot with four legs that has the power to run really, really fast!

 

If You're Not Scared, Be Sure to Look at the Video Below

You'll find its capabilities startling, to say the least. This tougher, stronger and smarter robot is a YouTube sensation and it's certain that we'll be hearing more about this humanoid machine in the future. As tech escalates, other companies may produce their own versions of Atlas, who is renowned for agility, brute force and the ability to react with lightning speed.

Now that you know more about Atlas and all that "he" can do, you'll definitely in the loop. If you want more information you can visit Boston Dynamics website.
