I'm sure it will be accused of sexual harassment at some point.
Manspreading at 00:11.
Why does it have to be white?
Get a mold of Kim Kardashian, make a silicone skin out of it, put it on Atlas and send her across the battle line in Afghanistan.
He needs a pair of red Chucks.
it could probably take a lot of screaming.. but would have to be taught how to scream back.
Does anyone else want to see how it would handle slippery mud on the other side of that log?
I would like to see a football game with Atlas's. Imagine a 100 yard toss into the end zone. Or kicking a 100 yard field goal.
After the first few slip-and-fall failures and a quick redesign, probably by pneumatically deploying steel spikes through the soles of its feet at the first hint of loss-of-traction.
Which might also come in handy for climbing, and stomping BGs who need a good stomping...
"This is John Conner, if you are listening, you are the resistance."
In all seriousness, I don't believe "terminators" (robots of war) are too far off in the future.
I don’t trust a soldier without the ability to think, reason or have compassion. Period.
When we transition to this, we are done....
It's not really a soldier without those things, IMO.
Until they become autonomous, devices like this are really nothing more than drones, or perhaps pack-mules. Once they become semi-autonomous, then they are just programmable drones.
It's when we give them AI and/or the ability to "learn" that it gets really dangerous for us all.
I don't see pure AI at first, instead see MechWarrior type battle suits. Imagine a single man with enhanced speed, strength, endurance, and senses.
At this point all the technology is already there, the only obstacle is the energy source.
That'll be for the NCOs, trying to keep up with the semi-autonomous battle units, so they can direct them in real time.
"You tin buckets get your rattly arses up here on the double, or I'll put my size 12 in your exhaust port! We got a hill to take!"
A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws
This could replace a lot of low skill/manual labor type jobs.
Warehouse works, miners, could even be setup to replace firefighters. Jobs considered high risk to people machines like this could be used.
I think the potential impact on the economy is greater than the risk of them overthrowing their human overlords.
When you have machines that can work 24/7, no benefits have to be paid, and if they break you just repair them, verses having to deal with lawsuits.
They wanted it to work.
Can they swim?
