Remember Amazon drones?  What ever happened to that?

Too bad they'll be distracted by robot squirrels

Was könnte möglicherweise falsch laufen?

I already have an autonomous dog. It's called a dog.

They're all being awarded to the ex-Mrs. Bezos as part of her new robot army.

THEY sent A SLAMHOUND on Turner's trail in New Delhi, slotted it to his pheromones and the color of his hair. It caught up with him on a street called Chandni Chauk and came scrambling for his rented BMW through a forest of bare brown legs and pedicab tires. Its core was a kilogram of recrystallized hexogene and flaked TNT.

The FAA approval for autonomous drones.

According to Continental, the same technologies that power an autonomous vehicle like CUbE are applied to the robots. Sensors, environment perception and modelling, positioning and situation analysis are among the areas in which the company has currently developed solutions.

I read that as "yodelling" and now I'm very disappointed in this project.

But who is working on chair dogs?

C.H.O.M.P.S. Is not obscure.

Rat-thing: check.

Slamhound: check.

Guess I'm not needed here.

I am actually relieved to hear this, because for the longest time it seemed like I was the only one who'd ever seen that movie.

Are there any dogs that aren't autonomous?

Like he said, he already has one.

pup.socket: Are there any dogs that aren't autonomous?


If they weren't, they'd need German shepherds.

So, soon the human postmen will be attacking robot dogs in a vain attempt to get their jobs back.

What a curious turn of events.

Finally.

I'll take an Afghandroid. No, wait... a Robotweiller.

The Bene Tleilax.  As soon as they finish breeding sligs.

Some of us grew up watching Wonderful World of Disney on Sundays, where we got the live action movies instead of the animated ones - except for maybe Saludos Amigos once in a great while.

"autonomous"?
jfc.
 
2019-01-12 11:41:00 PM  
And if you had an "autonomous dog", you wouldn't have a robut, you'd have a farking cat.

Domestic dogs have no autonomy, they are completely dependent on human overlords.

It made the rounds on cable. Back when Hbo would loop three movies continuously for months.

Ussrname checks out.

You've obviously never had a husky. We are more her jailers than her overlords.
