Everyone have seen Atlas, the robot that can do parkour and his little fellow Spot Mini.
Atlas, a humanoid, who can run, balance and do flips indoor and outdoors, is like a science fiction come true! It is only today we can see this kind of technology which is futuristic like a robotic utopia. But, I would rather see it become more useful for humans.
This comes the ability to meld the two: humans + robots to become cyborgs. Robotic future is great but a human that has the ability of a robot that can lift cars, do obstacles better than human only counterparts, is getting the best of both worlds. Just like cars, self autonomy is not effective and is hard to perfect, but joining human drivers AND robots in cars make it more safer and more beneficial. But, here comes the best part.
What if disabled people, those with severed limbs can suit-up like Iron Man and become like one? What if we combine the robotics that can really help humans with disabilities and become super-humans? It is the future, right now!
It’s like Luke Skywalker who got his hand cut off by Darth Vader with a lightsaber, and got a robotic hand and becomes able again, what is keeping us from being better?
