Robots: love em' or hate em', they're definitely going to destroy humankind, or at least that's how it always plays out in the movies. Coincidentally, that's also how it feels every single time Boston Dynamics releases a new video of its disconcertingly lifelike bots performing disconcertingly human-like tasks.

In all seriousness, there's nothing inherently harmful about these bots. For what it's worth, Boston Dynamics has taken a stance against equipping them with a weapon or anything that could harm or endanger human life, though with applications in law enforcement, it's hard to know where that stance begins and ends.
