That applies to robots, too.
Boston Dynamics, which was bought by Google in 2013, is an engineering company that creates robots for the military. Think Skynet, only with less Arnold Schwarzenegger (just kidding -- for now). It's unclear what Google's plans are at this time for Boston Dynamics, except that it will continue to honor existing military contracts. Based off the video, it could be something related to logistics, an area where the company has made some announcements recently.

In the video, you see the robot, aptly named Atlas, taking a trek through the woods, thinking it's all Little Red Riding Hood. Then, when it gets back to the lab, a gentlemen, presumably one of Boston Dynamic's engineers, starts testing it, using a hockey stick to push packages away. Finally, he pushes it down using a stick and that's where the incredible part really hits you.
Watch the video and let us know in the comments if you think this is awesome or if it's scary as hell:
