    They way the robot articulates and mimics human movements is both cool and creepy at the same time.

    Pretty good. It could do beer runs.

    I'm aware of Boston Dynamics, but wasn't aware google was involved.

    I'm no expert, but I truly believe a revolution in mechanization is taking place similar to what happened with computing in the 70's. I'm still unsure how "smart" technology will become in our life time, but it will be interesting to see. The only other limiting factor is the batteries/ power.
