What the fuck!? The world just finished a competition where robots like this couldn't walk or do basic tasks without taking an hour and tripping over their own dicks. Is this from the future?
Mister Yuck
They edited together five minutes of good footage with the intern who remembered his safety glasses and deleted when Atlas punished that other guy for fucking with his box.

Beginning of the end of the human race.

I think before that it's more like the end of another entire manual labor force.

The only things standing between us and a post-labor society are
1- our limited material and energy resources
2- our all around pig-headedness

We might be able to figure out a solution to the first one.

Binro the Heretic
3 - Our sadistic glee in subjugating other humans

4 - Comparative advantage.

"Hazelnut
4 - Comparative advantage."


Will favor decentralized automation (we already have community fabrication shops where I live, as a small example) within our lifetimes.


By "post labor" I really mean "10-20 hour work week for those who work, and the decoupling of labor and social 'value.'"


I'm a bit too cynical to really think it will happen smoothly and without a generation or two of horrific human suffering. Which is probably when the Moon Nazis will try to come back and take over.

I hope you're right OZ.

Monkey Napoleon
They should teach it to punch guys who try to take your box away. Holy shit what a dick.

The robot is just biding its time.

I thought the dude at 1:00 was going to reach out and hold its "hand".

Great, now we can't even run up stairs to escape the robots.

Sure, you could send this thing in to pull a kid out of a burning building, but you could also send it in to burn down a building.
