Woman Comes Across Boston Dynamics Walking an Atlas Robot in the Woods

This is the world that we are living in. A woman was walking her dog in the woods and came across a team from Boston Dynamics, walking one of their Atlas robots. Crazy. I guess we all have our pets. Some have animals, others have robots.

It’s pretty creepy when you think about it. You’re walking your dog in nature. It’s all peaceful. Then along comes Skynet, walking their robotic monstrosity. Her dog must have been pretty confused.

I’m not sure what is creepier, the fact that this happened at all, or the fact that the Boston Dynamics team seems like robots themselves. They way they didn’t even look at the woman or even seem to know that she and her dog were there is really creepy.
