Atlas is the latest in a long line of terrifying robots that may be leading the awkward, stilted robo-march toward the technological singularity. They’re incredibly sophisticated, complex, and hilarious, thanks to a couple of parody videos.
In Boston Dynamics’ original video, we watch Atlas put up with the daily drudgery of putting up with the usual bullshit at work without complaint. But YouTuber Michael Leip decided to give Atlas a voice that we can all relate to.
But a few people see more dire consequences if this robot abuse continues.
