Boston Dynamics Just Created A Nimble Warehouse Robot That Is Super Impressive

Boston Dynamics/YouTube

Robot-maker Boston Dynamics has shown off its latest futuristic machinery, which can effortlessly lift and transport packages with more agility than standard handling devices.

The American firm has previously revealed the Handle robot jumping around but a new video has emerged showing the technology being used in a more practical working environment, carrying boxes weighing about 11lb (5kg) – though it is capable of taking three times that.

Watch the video here:

Handle is seen working autonomously, quickly and carefully stacking boxes in a neat row on to pallets, providing a glimpse of how warehouse technology could be revolutionized in the future.

It uses a vision system to track marked pallets for navigation and individual boxes that can then be grasped and placed elsewhere.

"Spot" is featured in a number of their videos on their YouTube channel.

Game of Thrones fans are a passionate lot.

For eight seasons they wrung their hands and argued back and forth about who would sit on the iron throne and rule the seven kingdoms in the end.

But it turns out, the show may have told us right from the beginning.

Yes, if you've been on the internet, you know that everybody, even Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hates the 8th and final season of Game Of Thrones.

But a couple of Reddit posters are trying to ameliorate the vitriol flying at the end of the show by fleshing out a fan theory-which actually, totally makes sense.

Alright ladies and gentlemen, time for a pop quiz.

The first question is, what do the lyrics...

"And I am telling you..."
"Once there was a way to get back homeward"
"To a deluxe apartment in the sky"

...all have in common?

If you guessed Jennifer Hudson slaying them, you'd be correct!

Bye Felicia!

Best friends for life! That's the motto. Friends before lovers because lovers come and go. The list of friendship mantras is endless. So you would think that means everyone sees their relationships with the people they call their closest, not blood related, chosen family will be endless. No expirations date. Sadly this is not always the case. Sometimes people do just come and go in your life, actually the older you get you realize most people come and go and ninety percent of the time, the going is the best thing that happens. It's not the happiest fact but it is often the sanest. Life is long, you can have many besties.

Redditor u/HairyFaithlessness was interested in hearing some the best reasons behind... Why don't you talk to your once "best friend" anymore? Pay attention for yourself in these. Red flags are afoot.

A Jeopardy! contestant underestimated host Alex Trebek's intelligence when he clarified a gambling phrase in layman's terms.

James Holzhauer is a Las Vegas sports gambler, which is something not that different from playing the popular TV trivia game show.

He wagered "two dimes" and the brief silence that followed prompted Holzhauer to explain what he meant in case the omniscient host was in the dark.
