Might we be watching robot races like we do drone racing? The video shows Boston Dynamics robot running and jumping over obstacles. Either cool or creepy depending upon your perspective. This process reminds me of reading about the beginning of the aircraft and the Wright brothers. It was not one single thing that allowed flight, it was a number of different things working together.
There are some very similar elements such as AI and sense and avoid that this robot shares with it’s flying friends. Really interesting look into what is coming down the road.
