However, for the remainder of the population the concept of artificial intelligence either seams frightening when we picture a Matrix-type world where the human race is no longer needed; or it just seems bleak with a tinge of unrealistic.
There is some good news before we get to that period in life where the human race is at stake-as if it’s not already not happening. Certain techno-savvy individuals have created some of the worlds smartest, most interactive and coolest robots of our era.

The four-legged robot can adjust to different terrain and maneuver its way around objects as well as climb stairs! Albeit, to some it might just look like something from their worst nightmares.
