WE HATE TO KEEP BRINGING UP THE FLYING CARS WE WERE PROMISED, BUT...

Boston Dynamics’ latest robot is a mechanical ostrich that loads pallets

There goes Archie and Jughead's summer job.

No big deal. I had a robot like that 25 years ago. Drinking water from my glass.

Qaz--I had one of those drinking birds myself. I found if you substitute tequila for water in the glass that bird lost it's mind.

Do they get together after work and make baby robots?

OK, that's it. if we don't get flying cars in the next 30 days, I'm going to burn my Florida driver's license.

And in a totally unrelated article Ama$on is looking foreword to an increase in productivity and profits.

They're both female robots, based on the way they waggle their hips...

In looking at this video, it appears the one robot is taking things off of one pallet on a shelf and moving them all to another pallet on one of those wheeled dolly thing a ma bobs. Why not save time / energy/ money by pulling the pallet off the shelf in one piece and wheeling that to wherever it needs to go? Why unload it and then re-pile all the same things on a different pallet? They could eliminate a LOT of steps. Robots are just so inefficient!
