Boston Dynamics release footage of what appears to be an autonomous robot walking in woods, getting up from prone, lifting and moving easily through doors (Ackerman and Guizzo, 2016).

Reflection

Unsettling. This looks like the future of terminator movies. In fact when he (ha -fraudian slip) is pushed over I fully expected it to jump and pursue the aggressor over.
