I think most of us have seen Metalhead (episode 5, the 4th Black Mirror series). In this black-and-white episode, dogs-like machines take control of the Earth, terrorising people with their ruthlessness.



After watching this episode, probably every IT fan is immediately reminded what Boston Dynamics creates. The similarity of film killers to real robots created in this company is striking. Interestingly, the company Boston Dynamics in 2019 is going to sell these nice dogs. At first, 100-1000 items per year.



Let's also see the evolution that takes place in front of our eyes in robotics, in which Boston Dynamics is undoubtedly the leader.



Imagine that "dogs" are being sold in large ammounts in the following years and suddenly, due to a software bug or hacker attack, the apocalypse from the Black Mirror movie begins ...

I calm everyone down. NO - these are not yet "terminators".

Robots of this type will be sold with a remote control, where we control where they go. For now, they are only such modern "remotes". Although they are equipped with autonomous mode, it is still only setting a straight path from point A to point B.

It's good that artificial intelligence is not yet available ... ("it was not available so far" - Sara AI gonna think to herself soon).
