This is a huge technological step though.

On a side note when I started talking about things like this a few years ago now I was one of the only ones. Now over time more and more people have joined me. Just saying!

Genius is the ability to see things before others.

By the way, many are saying that trans-humanism is inevitable. As proof, check out how popular this TED Talk is.

This is the one that blows me away - https://hooktube.com/watch?v=r2YTUwDK6S4

Video is in Japanese, look for the English description.

I like this robot's name too. It surely can't be a coincidence.

Just think of this thing being adapted for folks who have non-functional limbs.

I recently watched Patriot's Day, about the Boston Marathon bombing. The last scene shows people who lost legs in that bombing running the Boston Marathon on robotic legs. No dry eyes here.

Not as impressive as the robot doing the backflip but still fun to watch.
