It will be much more impressive when they arm/weaponize it. And even more impressive when it becomes self-aware and decides it doesn't need us.

As shown though, it would be useful around the house for emptying the diaper pale and cleaning the cat box.

Judging by how in its own promotional video it clipped the car 56 seconds in, I'm not sure I would trust this particular robot/controller with anything where lives were concerned :/.

Apparently it already has a mind of it's own. As seen here it is flirting with the Bestbuy machine...

Well you will also be in deep shit when she becomes self-aware.
