There are really some amazing things being done with robotics right now.  I think this part of the century we are taking our advances in communications and computing and starting to make practical more physical use of that power.

These robots are pretty sophisticated, and can handle serious abuse by their builders, including keeping their balance when kicked over, and getting back up when falling.  Bipedal, quadruped, and wheeled - all are pretty cool.
