Death has come your way
Oh what fun
It is to ride
In a multi robot
Death dealing sleigh

How the hell am I supposed to go toe to toe with a RoboChan? Goddamn Boston Dynamics ...
BD will be ruined by the new owner, SoftBank trying to squeeze some profits out of it so now worries about SkyNet or Jacki Chan. From a 2017 article


While Boston Dynamics has wowed the world several times over with its incredible robots that can do things like lift loads, jump higher than a human can and get up after it’s fallen over, the company hasn’t been able to build anything it can bring to the market, or earning its owner any revenue.

It’ll be interesting to see what Boston Dynamics is tasked with under its new owner. There are valid concerns about the innovative firm’s wings being clipped and the team being forced to make simple robots designed for basic interactions with humans, but that’s yet to be seen.

What you should really fear is Jacki Chan singing :shock:

We know what the machine gun did to war in the late 1800's and early 1900's. AI weapns will do the same, I suspect.

Well, I found a place online that will sell me ones that are 80% complete and all I have to do to finish them is fill in a couple of holes in the code and I'll have my very own, untraceable, unregistered AI, 100% legally! Sure, it costs about 4x more than buying an AI in a store or online, but no one will know that I have these!
