Why the jobs might not be coming back

Currently there’s a huge statistical game played with unemployment versus true unemployement, and automation taking jobs no matter what continent we’re talking about. The big numbers and theoreticals are nice, but I would prefer to show just exactly How and What might take your job. Below is a recently released story from The Verge on Boston Dynamics newest robots. The Verge refers to it as nightmare inducing. Perhaps. But there’s no question that the technology found here will wind up in use in our factories and homes and pretty much everywhere else. If this were 100 years ago, we might have called automobiles and washing machines “nightmare inducing”.

According to James Vincent for the Verge: “The company’s new wheeled, upright robot is named Handle (‘because it’s supposed to handle objects’) and looks like a cross between a Segway and the two-legged Atlas bot. Handle hasn’t been officially unveiled, but was shown off by company founder Marc Raibert in a presentation to investors. Footage of the presentation was uploaded to YouTube by venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson.
