The odd combination of the words ‘advanced’ and ‘robotics’ rings into anyone’s minds an exoskeleton walking around with a Gatling gun randomly enslaving the human populace. Though such a terminator like robot domination scenario is not entirely impossible, at present robots are nothing but harmless little droid doing their part in making our lives much easier. While some of them travel to places one thought to be impossible for human exploration such as the mars rovers, others stay in murky workshops of large factories ensuring that you get the best quality products. But whatever it is that they may be doing, they surely are evolving and are getting good at it. So now let’s take a look on how far these amazing electronic controlled contraptions have progressed and what are the current top 10 most advanced robots.
Do you believe you can outrun a robot? Well if you do, then you need take a look at this new invention from Boston Dynamics. Dubbed as the cheetah robot, it’s got a pretty good reason to bear such a title, because at present it is the fastest robot ever created. Though it can’t clock a 100Kmph as the original animal it derives its name from, it sure can outrun even the fastest runners, averaging at a speed of 45Kmph. And it can do it for large sustained periods of time thanks to its efficient inbuilt hydraulic pumps. So if a robot apocalypse ever comes, running may not be the best option against this one

Ok, seriously you got two Cheetah robots, programmed to defend your house.
How well do you sleep at night under such, circumstances?
Seriously what if they were augmented with facial recognition technology?

Boston Dynamics is making epic strides in their robotics developments. In the below video their latest creation Atlas walks right out the door and into the woods. The only thing it is missing is the weapon. Which you know BD has already tested it with weapons but we won't see any of those videos.
And here is the latest update on Atlas doing back flips already. We are well past the "creepy" and "scary" point now. This is getting into weaponized robotics now. Boston Dynamics isn't making these things to move inventory in a warehouse either. These are military bound.
