The field of robotics is an amazing field and it seems like every day they become more and more human-like. Boston Dynamics is one of the front runners in robotics, and if you have never heard of them you are missing out! They are constantly putting out these truly incredible videos that blow my mind every time I see them. Take a look at the video below and be prepared to be utterly wowed at what this mechanical creature can do.
If we are being truly honest, I feel as if I would struggle to keep up with the agility that is demonstrated here. In other videos, they have robots able to bend down, grab a heavy load, then stand up and move it somewhere else in a precise manner. Some of them are even able to catch items thrown at it, which truly blows my mind. The future of the world is heavily invested in robots being able to almost seamlessly take the place of humans when necessary. Whether this is a good or bad thing it is still impressive that scientists have made advances well past what the great sci-fi novels of the mid 20th century ever envisioned!
