:o  Damn, these things are getting to mimic who-mans a little too closely.  ???

Maybe, but I don't think so.

SkyNet is coming...

I think I've posted vids from them before.  Unless they are trolling the internet/world, they've made amazing progress in the last couple years.

SkyNet is coming...

Hyundai just bought controlling interest in BD for over 1 Billion.

SkyNet is coming...  >:D

It is unquestionably CGI...regardless of what Elon Musk says!

...but I agree, SkyNet is, in fact, coming.

Boston Dynamics is a robotics company.  I watched the motions and the robots were definately doing the correct things to maintain balance while dancing.

CGI. And I won't believe it is not until I see it perform in person with my own eyes. BD have pulled this before.

The Robot Dancing does look awful fake to me too, un-natural if you ask me. But so do I on the dance floor after a couple of Long Island Iced Teas. But if they can dance, then they should be able to fight each other by now right? This could be a good thing.  :bd:

I won't really be impressed by those robots until they can get "the kick" and thumbs involved....

It's just programming. They've had the balance thing down pat for some time. It's not like we're believing they're doing that on their own or that they've learnt it - they've just been programmed to do it.

I expect it took some time to write the routines

Oh absolutely, they were programmed.   What impresses me is how the devs have got the mechanics/movement down to mimic humans so closely.  I expect in a few more years, they can probably get the mechanical "skeleton" to look and be sized to a more human scale.
