Bloggers spend countless hours posting sneak previews of the latest Star Wars droids from location shoots, then post links to Funko toy versions of them.
Commenters ooh and aah over said videos and toys and watch endless hours of Anthony Daniels talking about how stuffy it was inside that suit while he was making our collective memories.
But every time Boston Dynamics releases a new video showing their astonishing advancements in a field that will have direct net benefit for humanity, knowing that there is no such thing as AI sentience, let alone any indication that sentience would be malevolent in any way, it’s all “burn ‘em at the stake!!!”
I will never understand it.
ETA: That first bit is in no way a dig at you @Rusty_Blazenhoff, I couldn’t give a fig about reboings.
