As you probably heard EVERYWHERE, Google has acquired Boston Dynamics, a company that has been developing fast, animal-like robots in relationship to the U.S. military. I know, scary stuff. Of course this is not the first we’ve heard about Google and robots. Google has purchased seven robotics firms over the past six months leading many to believe we’re on the eve of a “robot revolution.” And of course Amazon has been talking about their delivery drones, so it’s safe to say the times they are a changing!
However, one thing that remains consistent is people taking their amazement to Twitter. Thus, I bring to you the 9 Best Tweets About Google’s Robots. Whether it’s fear or amazement, you’ll see it all here.
Google is making battle robots? That sounds like an amazing idea that won’t have any negative consequences whatsoever.

Mark my words, these Google Robots will rise up against their captors. They will knock their glasses off of them and take their lunch money.

Did Google buy Boston Dynamics and those creepy robots just to arm them with lasers and shoot Amazon’s drones out of the sky? Probably.
