I am blown away by the speed at which our robots are evolving. We aren’t seeing them too much in our everyday lives, but as soon as they reach a critical threshold for agility, balance, autonomous navigation, and safety — BOOM! They will be everywhere. I see us approaching that quickly. Not tomorrow, not next year. But five years from now I think we’ll see the number of everyday robots in our communities skyrocketing. Here are a few videos to give you a sense of the trend.
“Our idea is to try and build robots that can do everything that people and animals can do.” – Marc Raibert, Boston Dynamics.
