Robotics company Boston Dynamics has been working on a really cool project involving everyone's favorite things: dogs and robots. Their latest video reveals their futuristic, AI-operated canines, and the scene's got the internet in an uproar.
The video features two brightly-colored robot dogs with eerily greyhound-like (or velociraptor-esque) features. When one of the dogs tries to open a door and can't, it gestures to its buddy to come help.
Using teamwork, the robot dogs manage to open the door. But even though it took nearly 30 seconds to accomplish the feat, many people are freaked out by the idea of AI being able to do such refined, mobile tasks.
Some have noticed similarities between the robot dogs and the velociraptors in Jurassic Park. After watching the video, what do you think? Are the robot dogs totally awesome, or are they fearfully apocalyptic?
