The grim, violent efficiency of this machine is terrifying. lol. Imagine if it was sentient.

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.

Driverless tractors. This ad plays like one of those fictionalized industrial commercials you see in futuristic movies like Robocop and T2.
Your days are numbered, dahling.
Hey there goes Alex. He's loaded with money. Wow he's really set himself up great.

Couldn't decide which video to post, so here's the channel for everyone to check out on their own: https://www.youtube..../BostonDynamics
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.

No this isn't one of those fake ads from the movie RoboCop.
What is the purpose of an average security guard?
Robotics, with some bits of AI (not even really necessary) can handle most of this. The problem is generally that a robot is considered property and not a living being. A criminal who would not harm life nor limb might harm the robot to disable it since it's non-living. So legislation should be changed to define a new state, disabling or destroying a security robot carries a higher penalty than say breaking a window or camera. Could work.
