So Google is indexing all human knowledge, it knows where you are and what you want, and now it’s gone and bought this company which is developing
creepy walking scary running robots for the US military.
The New York Times reports that Google will honour the existing contracts which its new acquisition, Boston Dynamics, has with the Pentagon; but that “it did not plan to move toward becoming a military contractor on its own”.
Why would it, when it could become a military power instead? I for one welcome our new robot overlords.
Seriously though: inventing the wheel was easy. Reverse engineering the leg? Now that’s technology!
