Now replace that shock absorber with a plasma cannon and you've got an accurate glimpse of the future.
Boston Dynamics ATLAS Humanoid Takes Break From Work To Dance

This is a video of a Boston Dynamics ATLAS humanoid robot taking a break from unboxing and sorting shock absorbers to dance. The headless horseman of the apocalypse moves like it’s about to fall down at any second, but manages not to. Kind of like me when I’m drunk, except I do fall down. Now imagine instead of shock absorbers it’s loading a laser cannon with plasma munitions. Are you scared yet? Because you should be. I’m going to run for president on an ‘UNPLUG SKYNET’ platform. And I SHOULD win, but will likely only receive a single write-in vote from my mom.
