Well I hope I don’t meet this guy in a dark alley any time soon. Six feet tall, 330 LBS and an arm span from “finger to finger” of what looks like about eight feet. He’s of course made out of steel, and agile like a cat. Wait until they get this guy refined a few more generations and equip him with 50 caliber automatic firing power.
This is a follow up to our prior Blog Post on robotic “Singularity”. Our Singularity Blog Post outlines the “direction” this whole subject is headed, and will put this subject matter into perspective if you’re new to this topic. This new source article states;
“Meet DARPA’s Humanoid Robot That Could Someday Save You From A Crumbling Building”
You can bet that they’re not developing these guys to fumble around is crumbling buildings, you can count on that. That statement is just to make it all sound nice for the “sound bytes”.
The article written by Kit Eaton states;
“Give it a few years and a robot like Atlas may be pulling survivors from tumbled buildings in post-earthquake scenarios. And possibly terrifying the crap out of enemy soldiers on the battlefield.”
Yes Kit, and you forgot to mention “the streets of America”.
In this case a “video” is worth ten thousand words.
