Ich finde den Clip ja irgendwie auch ein kleines bisschen dystopisch, aber so könnte die Zukunft wohl aussehen.
Digit is strong enough to pick up and stack boxes weighing up to 40 lb (18 kg), as well as durable enough to catch itself during a fall using its arms to decelerate. In addition to the physical changes, the control system for Digit has been overhauled to enable advanced behaviors such as stair climbing and footstep planning, all controlled through a robust API that can be accessed both onboard the robot and via a wireless link. …out-of-the-box, Digit will be up and walking within five minutes, even for users who are not legged-locomotion control researchers.

Falls ihr mal wieder über verloren gegangene Pakete rantet: Vielleicht war es gar nicht der Zusteller, vielleicht war es eine Schwarzbärin und ihre Jungen.
„An injured black bear sow and her 2 cubs stole an Amazon package off our porch in the middle of the night. The mother bear is known in our area and a neighbor thinks she has been injured and traveling on 3 legs for several years. The stolen amazon package contained Blue Buffalo brand dog food, Milk-Bone brand dog treats, and banana chocolate chip Lara bars. The package was delivered by FedEx. I found remains of the package 2 days later in the woods near my house. All the dog food and treats were eaten. About 5-10 lara bars had been opened and eaten, but the rest remained uneaten.“
In Stadtmitte aber vielleicht auch nicht… Okay.
