Personal Flight with the Iron Man Mk II

I've been seeing these Youtube clips from a company called Gravity Industries that have designed and tested personal flight suits for about the last three years. They are always impressive to watch, but the twist on this one makes me laugh.

The idea that we can 3D print in titanium and fly around in it is unbelievable to me. Even five years ago, I would have called BS on both these technologies.

Boston Dynamics are creating the technology of the Terminator.

While an amazing achievement in robotics, I can't help but be a little worried about the future.

Oh, does that mean today's robots aren't kicking people in the junk for teasing them and then holding them at gun point?
