NEWS: Google creates robot that will one day murder us all
Well, this is the beginning of the end for human civilisation as we know it. New footage released from Google-owned Boston Dynamics, a company that makes quite frankly terrifying robots, shows off their latest creation; Atlas. Atlas is a humanoid robot that can open doors, walk over uneven ground (covered in snow!) and even lift heavy boxes.
Christ. In the video Atlas looks just a little too human for our liking, especially when it stumbles, but stays upright, in the snow. Further into the video a man can be seen SHOVING THE ROBOT WITH A HOCKEY STICK! What is he doing? One day, when they finally upgrade Atlas with a flame thrower or something, he'll find that bloke and burn his face off. Then he'll turn on the rest of us.
Fans of The Terminator, Battlestar Galactica, Blade Runner and most other SciFi involving robotic uprisings will put their own spin of this footage (we know we bloody have), but it does show just how quickly robotics is moving along.
