I suppose it says a lot about me that I feel “distressed” that they are “abusing” the robot.

We all felt that SR.  We cheered when the robot began to whoop ass, the particular asses which genuinely needed whoopin.


I think that video was somehow faked, don’t know how.  Looking at it from the POV of a controls guy, pushing or hitting the biped bot with a hockey stick isn’t so much an assault as it is a random input, which requires a compensation loop.


If Boston Dynamics really did get an actual robot to do all this, I am really impressed with them.


I would still like to see those guys get a bot-delivered ass whoopin of course, but once I think it thru, everything they did there makes sense.
