Latest Atlas Robot by Boston Dynamics

Did you see the latest Atlas Robot by Boston Dynamics? Incredible that this is possible already today (gets really interesting at around 1:23):

I think this basiscally means that in about 10 years, 95% of all jobs can be replaced by machines. It's scary and interesting at the same time. Happy that I'm a programmer.

Only one comment:

Although this thing is a technological marvel, it really scares me to see the progress they make. You are right that most jobs will be replaced by machines, but it will not be to the benefit of society, not with our current ruling elite.

However the most scary part is, these things WILL be used for military purposes and eventually to suppress the common people. No more riots when these things walk around! I think there’s 3 things TPTB over:
1. No more cash, the banks as the only medium of exchange.
2. Everyone tagged and tracked like a dog.
3. These robots as police force.

It’s only a matter of time until we see the first news flash reporting a robot that killed a human independently, on its own logic.

A bright future for humanity!
