The beginning of the end, thank Toyota for the robot army

I’ve been sick with a stomach parasite that seems to be going around and haven’t been able to do much, however when  i heard about this on the Buzz Out Loud podcast episode 1032 I thought i must share.  Toyota has developed a robot that can not only run (which is astounding in itself compared to previous prototypes) but when pushed it can regain its balance and continues running at speeds of up to 7km/h. I’ve attached the youtube video showing this!!

This amazes and some how scares me knowing that we might be living into our own real live movie version of iRobot, not to mention Terminator.
