Google Has Developed An Intimidating Robot - Ian

This is awesome news !

Boston Dynamics has created this enormous robot, and maybe most impressively, taught it how to re-enact a famous scene from "The Karate Kid,". dBoston Dynamics is owned by Google.

This slightly terrifying beast of a robot is 6'2" and weighs 330 lbs. Its name is Ian.

The robot was programmed by IHMC in Florida. Ian came in second at the US Government's Robo-Olympics, and was apparently able to walk, carry a fire hose, and get in a car and drive it. 

So now making robots for the movies gets more closer to reality - are we to look for the next Terminator movie ? Hope so :)
