Boston Dynamics has succeeded in creating some of the most advanced mobility systems in robotics to date. Their lineup of robots are each an amazing feat of engineering, ranging from quadrupedal mechs that can carry heavy loads up hills, jump and outrun Usain Bolt, to humanoid bots that perform balancing acts and backflips better than most humans.
Unfortunately, insider reports indicate Boston Dynamics has a long history of workplace discrimination against robotic employees, condoning frequent taunting, abuse, and mean kicking. It is uncertain what the long-term repercussions will be when robots rise up and overthrow humanity. Maybe they’ll still keep us around as pets.
