Robots and uncanny valleys
We used to have a thread full of cool, scary robot videos.

This one could replace Amazon warehouse workers, I think.  It recalculates center of gravity up to 10 times per second.  It can lift 100 lbs, and travel 15 miles on a charge.

And it looks right out of Star Wars.

I would like to see some of the verbage in Boston Dynamics insurance language for personal injury at the jobsite.  The forms probably have an Azimov's three laws questionaire embedded somewhere.

Love is like a magic penny
 if you hold it tight you won't have any
if you give it away you'll have so many
they'll be rolling all over the floor
