We have now entered the sci-fi era of Star Wars and War of the Worlds. Boston Dymamics has developed robots/androids that are caple of things which up until now have only been in the movies.

The thought of an actual robot army is a bit scary but could be an idea for some small models.

A couple of videos here (lots mote on line)

Drones, pilotless planes and the submarine that was captured in Indonseis have been around for a while. Lots of kids probably got one of the toy flying kind for christmas but smart robots that can dance and walk over different objects without human control are on a higher level.

My thread title was chosen to abstract the spirit in which Boston Dynamics presented the video: A joyous celebration of what has been achieved ... with a message of hope for the future, driven by mankind’s ability to innovate.

Edit: This new thread usefully adds ‘Robots’ as a searchable keyword, so all’s well

There's the drones that are phasing out fireworks. The level of reliability and accuracy is mind-boggling.

Drones are being used in many applications and some resembling birds of prey are used at airports to scare away birds. The photos captured by drones are amazing and I had one on my list to Santa but it didn't arrive. (probably because of the quarantine regulations for international visitors)

The Australian defence force has been using drones for a number of years. **LINK**

The latest which is being developed in Aust. for General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (USA) is the MQ-9 Reaper. An unmanned aerial vehicle capable of remotely controlled or autonomous flight operations.

It has a top speed of 482 km/h and a range of 1,850 km
