You Won't Believe What Robots Can Do Right Now!

Personally, I'm excited about the potential for a robot-friendly future -- imagine the incredible things humans could accomplish if they didn't have to deal with all the time-consuming chores and activities necessary for survival and, instead, farmed them out to robots.  You want to talk about the eradication of poverty and massive increases in wealth for all? Well, a robotic world would allow that to happen.  But I'm a little off topic at the moment -- what I want to do with this post is to present a really cool feature recently put together by Popular Mechanics [ht: instapundit] that showcases 61 really incredible things robots currently in existence can do right now!  For example, check out this Boston Dynamics robotic Cheetah:
