Google’s Boston Dynamics ‘Atlas’ Robots Are Becoming Scarily Human

The Alphabet-owned robotics company released a video on Tuesday of the Atlas, in which it moves boxes and gets back up after being knocked down. "It's super eerie. In 10 years, the idea is going to be 'would you let this robot put your kids to bed? Would you let it change your kid's diaper?'" Calacanis said. "That's how fast this is going to advance. It's picking up packages right now. These things are going to be walking down the street 10 to 15 years from now, delivering pizzas; they're going to be in your office moving packages around."

Boston Dynamics’ new “Atlas” robot is a game changer, not just for companies, but for society, CEO Jason Calacanis said Wednesday.

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book,even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: We live in a time of such high technological changes that we are beginning to pay less and less attention as new technologies are released. But you better pay attention to this one. We are about to cross the threshold of all-human rule and begin the process of handing at least some of it over to robotic humanoids. Google is spending billions to make this a reality, and as this video shows, they have succeeded. Amazon right now uses robots in their warehouses, soon they will be handing you coffee at Dunkin Donuts and driving you to work.

“This is really the end of manual labor. When you watch this video, he’s walking through the snow; he’s wobbly, but he gets back up,” the tech investor told CNBC’s “Squawk Alley.”

“Manual labor is going to end in our lifetime, and in this video you can see how close we really are. It’s a huge societal issue with jobs, but it’s going to be a huge lift in terms of efficiency of companies that nobody expected.”

This Boston Dynamics Robot Stands Up To Human Torment:

These things are going to be walking down the street 10 to 15 years from now, delivering pizzas; they’re going to be in your office moving packages around.”

Calacanis also noted that‘s offices currently have robots executing simple tasks and “eliminating human jobs.” source

    All LIVES MATTER to Jesus ( Yeshua ) Christ!!

    Love Always and Shalom Everyone,


  • if they keep replacing humans with machines and robots to do their work and as more people become unemployed who is going to buy their stuff? JESUS will either return soon or their is going to be a revolution around the world. throughout history these things have never ended well.

    Hmmm. The sixth trumpet?

  • Trober

    End of manual labor?

    Who’s going to build the robots? Maintain them? And, all the industry, services, etc. that’ll be necessary to keep them in the market and viable?

    more robots? No. People.

    Face the fact you can’t live a middle-class lifestyle putting boxes on a shelf. You CAN, though, by learning how to adapt to the demand that will come to have these robots in the market.

    • Why can’t robots build robots? Totally plausible. And if you have a FREE robot work force, that IS the “middle class”….what do you need people for?

    Satanic forces want to reduce the population . war, disease etc for greater control
    They don’t human bodies if they make their own. They would see us all dead if technology allows
    satan aims to make us redundant.
    But Christ will return just before we destroy the whole earth

  • Ole Ingvar

    This is beginning of the end. I bet, what till this year such things will patrol streets with guns in their “hands”. In 2020 year they will scan everyone and who won’t have mark of the beast – shoot to kill.

    • Wendy

      Unfortunately, that sounds totally plausible and likely to me!

  • HOPE

    The technology used during the Tribulation years seems to be today’s technology. If it continues much longer, it will surpass those things that were foretold in the Bible. Seems our days on this earth are REALLY numbered.

    Hi Geoffrey, I was just listening to your “The bible believers guide to The Time of Jacobs Trouble” audio sermon, and you mentioned that the battle of Gog/Magog war takes place after the 100 year reign of Christ, this is the first time I have ever heard this viewpoint, I always understood that this war takes place before the Tribulation? Can you or someone in the comments please give me a little more understanding of this?

    Thank you and God bless you all

    • Yes, the Bible says that after the 1,000 Reign Of Christ from the Throne of David in Jerusalem, Satan will be loosed from his prison and be allowed out to deceive the world one more time. In this last ditch effort, Satan convinces a huge percentage of the world population join him in a global army to fight one last battle. The Battle of Gog and Magog:

      “And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.” Revelation 20:7-9 (KJV)

        Thank you so much Mr Grider for your answer…I will most definitely check out the article you linked!
        God bless you for the awesome work you are doing.

    Professing themselves to be WISE, they became FOOLS, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an IMAGE made like to corruptible man, and birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things. Romans 1:23&24. Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude (form) on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image the similitude of ANY FIGURE, the likeness of male or female, the likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air, the likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth: And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship the, and serve them, which the LORD they GOD hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven. But the LORD hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto Him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day. Deuteronomy 4:15-20

    Just to make my point. Some of the names of the robots are: L53, Atlas, Petman, Cheetah, BigDog, SandFlea, Rhex, Rise, Little Dog, don’t forget the Hummingbird, bee, etc. Just sayin

  • MG

    LOL! Looks like a robot to me…they made better ones in Hollywood. I believe I saw a flaw, yep! They can be disabled….more easily than people. Robots are very slow and cannot move with split decision accuracy.



    “And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.

    And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

    And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

    And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.”
    Daniel 2:40-43
