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.
