#WatchOutForTheRobots - Google's SCHAFT Robot to the Rescue

It’s #WatchOutForTheRobots Wednesday!

“Watch out for the robots” is just a phrase we use whenever we see a crazy technology that clearly has the potential to be pretty darn scary if it ever were to go awry. No, no, this isn’t because we have a pessimistic view of the future (though phronesis in all technological developments / applications is important), we just love finding/sharing this stuff.

There’s more than a little bit of noise about Google’s recent acquisition of a number of robotics companies. Despite the quiet “snapping up” of a number of impressive robotics companies – including the notable Boston Dynamics – the eyeballs of the tech world are on Google to potentially be the company to bring science fiction to life. The SCHAFT robot above is one of the world’s most impressive humanoid robots… and with so many companies under it’s command – it seems likely that the next leaps in robotics are likely to come from our favorite search engine company.
