Okay, so… These dog robots are definitely happening, despite the fact the US military is concerned that their soldiers won’t bond with these machines, despite that they’re just not as good as dogs, and despite the fact that I’ve been complaining for months.
Perhaps this wouldn’t freak me out so much if they just stopped referring to them as “dogs.” Either way, enjoy the lastest installment of the uncanny valley of the dogs. Woof!
Boston Dynamics is probably best known for their creepy “mule” robot that is often compared to dog but clearly falls short.
Even the gritty, apocalyptic Fallout 4 gives you a real-dog companion.
As impressive as Boston Dynamic’s state of the art robots are, you have to admit there’s something a bit disconcerting about life-sized, metallic humanoids walking off an assembly line.
At least REAL dogs aren’t being fooled! You’ll have to wait another day, Robocalypse!
