Robots of the future at Boston Dynamics

After years of trying, 60 Minutes cameras finally get a peek inside the workshop at Boston Dynamics, where robots move in ways once only thought possible in movies. Anderson Cooper reports.
"60 Minutes" is the most successful television broadcast in history. Offering hard-hitting investigative reports, interviews, feature segments and profiles of people in the news, the broadcast began in 1968 and is still a hit, over 50 seasons later, regularly making Nielsen's Top 10.

    It’s kind of cute seeing the guy use the Xbox controller, they definitely used the Xbox controller before they made a specialized one.

    The God of Israel is coming back very soon. He will rapture His people, and judge the world for it's unrighteousness. I don't want anyone to be disappointed for all eternity. If you're willing, please use this time to seek Jesus Christ with all your heart until you find Him. The Lord looks nothing like the famous pictures. I've seen Him. God is faithful to His promises. If you love Jesus Christ use this limited time to build a relationship with Him before the doors of mercy close. Those left behind will suffer, many of them will die and not make it into the kingdom. I warn because I care. It's not God's will that anyone perish but all repent to receive eternal life. I find no pleasure in the death of sinners. I want to see many of you transformed into the image of Christ, and all for His Glory. And please avoid the Covid-19 vaccine if you love Jesus Christ. Those who recieve the vaccine have destroyed the image of God within them. They will be seperated from God for all eternity. Everything written in the book of revelation will be fulfilled. This is the end.

    More unemployment. No business invests in tech if it does not reduce their costs--including payroll. Yes, more employees building robots--many more losing their jobs on the other end--especially, the low wage jobs.

    I dont have doubts on the statement they won't develop an own mind. But used in military or in the hand of wrong people they can be used as a tool to surpress people, even population. Imagine them as police or military soldiers. It makes me think that in conjunction with AI they can substitute popolation actually/ working class. Compare statements by Bill Gates that population has to decrease. Sure, not yet but when further developed jobs that dont need an own, independent, creative mind they can replace everything else
