White Men, and Robots, Really Can Jump
Technology advances at a tremendous speed, as proven by the existence of new robots that challenge human capacities. One of them is Boston Dynamics’ new creation, capable of lifting up to 100 pounds and jumping 4 feet high while rolling around at 9 miles per hour. The challenge? To make the most of this progress to positively influence society — harnessing technology’s use for emergencies, for example, or for improving the daily lives of disabled people.
