    Google just bought their 8th robotic company in the past six months. Check out this quote about the purchase of Boston Dynamics last week.

    The search giant last week bought Boston Dynamics, marking its eighth acquisition of a robotics company in the past six months, the New York Times reported over the weekend. But while Google’s previous acquisitions were companies that made bits and parts of robots, the Boston Dynamics deal makes clear that Google’s true ambition is human-like robots interacting with ordinary people.

    “The only reason to buy this company is to make complete androids, systems that can walk around on our sidewalks and right up to our homes," says Illah Nourbakhsh, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University and author of the book Robot Futures. Such bots could be incredibly helpful, but also incredibly invasive as they send data and pictures back to Google, he says.


    This is one of Boston Dynamics creations. Creeps me the fuck out.

    That company makes amazing stuff. I bet short term they want to use them for mapping. They have a backpack based camera thingy and have hikers map out area not accessible by car.

    I've always liked the seamless google experience but since I got this android phone things are on a whole new level. I know they are watching, I know they are tracking, I know they are archiving, I don't give a fuck cause it all works so fucking good.

    This fucker will be a Mod someday.

    Imagine that sound and a firearm attached to it coming at you. With the cash that Google has, they will become a Defense Contractor. I guarantee it. DaveinDiego Style.
