Oh for F sake. I will be replaced by a dancing robot at work within the next decade.

Really cool to see how far robot tech has come.

TBH the whole Boston Dynamics robots for whatever reason really freak me out. I think it's a sort of uncanny valley because their movements sort of look organic, but it's these weird looking robots.

With that said, it is pretty incredible tech.

All we need is actual, sentient AI and our robotic overlords will be ready to rule us.

It genuinely freaked me out that we're now this far from robot tech! I wouldn't be surprised given 5 or 10 more years, that we have a human-looking robot that dances too! Probably a sentient one at that.

At least after the takeover, there will still be dancing.

curious how they're programed? like for the humanoid robots, do they have some kind of mo-cap setup to translate movements to the robots?

Still awhile before they last a whole work day then.
