Liking toys, selling trinkets and a fascination with baubles = "not care a fuck about people loosing their jobs"? That's JamesT grade logic. :thumbdown:

Well never got the impression he bothered very much about other people or did you?

Looking at your posts here and at Rationalia it is possible to get the same impression about you, me and many other members, but that is neither here nor there. I will not conclude that anyone does "not care a fuck about people loosing their jobs" until I find at least one actual statement to that effect. I reiterate: Your assertion is the result of JamesT grade logic.

You can assert anything you like. I am not impressed but never was about your level of posting if you want to get personal. Who do you presume you are talking for? Tom. Dick and Harry? Do us all a favour and keep your assertions where they belong.
You only speak for yourself on a forum. Sadly something you fail to understand but that is not the only thing.

Once again Macdoc lives up to expectations just more baubles. He does not even care where his baubles are made and what the workers conditions are.

What happens when they stop and the driver doesn't apply the brakes? Or if they get to a downward sloping hill?

It's not a serious suggestion of a practical task for such robots, just footage of a never before seen party trick.

The demo is more about robots working together as a coordinated unit -

Boston Dynamics repeatedly manage to enter Uncanny Valley from the other side. Everything they make just looks terrifying, but not for any reason you can put your finger on.

@Macdoc Have you ever worked such job? Rhetorical. Automation frees people for menial and mundane tasks, literally.

Sure, there are questions like: what to do with the people who make living doing such tasks? where do they get income from? who is gonna pay for it? ... but conceptually, freeing oneself from such labor opens up many possibilities like using the brain for creativity, critical thinking or education and using energy for stuff like beekeeping or getting involved in communities or sharing own wisdom and experiences with others. Besides "mirror neurons" are far from being mechanized as far as I know.

It is the way to go. Automation allows humans to realize their potential. The only question is how we handle it.

I did. I was a shipper-receiver for a pneumatic parts distributor. It was a great job for a 21 year old. What sucked was getting to the job. It was in the middle of a suburban industrial park

Why was it a great job? When I was 16 I did 2 weeks in a factory, drilling holes into a metal L shaped piece and it took me about 4 hours to conclude it was shit, certainly not a thing I needed a brain for.

Yes ..and ??

Seems to me it frees corporations from paying staff the reason I refuse categorically to use self checkout.

Oregon has a law that does not allow people to self serve their own gas ....and I'm fine with that.

You seem to think that one kind of work is superior to another ...making a good burger is as meaningful as designing a skyscraper.....depends on what you bring to it....and if you parse that reference I'll be impressed.

So you have different criteria for what a good job is. Good for you.
I wasn’t a line worker. I was a shipper receiver. Quite different. I worked pretty much alone, it was task oriented and self managing. It allowed me time to think about other stuff while I did menial things. And a pretty good paycheck for a 20 year old to boot.
