For the Sake of Humanity, STOP Improving These Walking Robots

Boston Dynamics, makers of the viral "Big Dog" quadruped robots that resist kicks and uneven terrain by walking (and even running) with uncanny human-like balance, have released some unnerving new video footage. One of their four-legged robots now has the addition of a super-creepy "manipulator" arm that is capable of opening doors, and the "Atlas" bipedal robot has taken its first steps outdoors in the woods. If we've said it once, we've said it a million times...this is how Skynet takes over! By the way, Boston Dynamics is owned by (wait for it) Google.
