Robots are no longer a thing of the future.

For decades, we’ve been fascinated by the concept of robots. From sci-fi and space films to contemporary works of fiction, mechanic friends and foes have pervaded our collective consciousness for some time, always as a gleaming — and scary — product of futurism.

Robotics design company Boston Dynamics is one of today’s leaders in the production of diverse and utilitarian robots, having worked with DARPA, Sony, and the US Army, Navy, and Marine Corps. Claiming to create the “most advanced robots on Earth,” Boston Dynamics never fails to impress us with their skilled robots with near-perfect mobility, sensor-based controls, and complex mechanisms.
