    Francisco Gimeno - BC Analyst Robotics is a technology in rapid expansion. although Musk is talking about humanoid robots, the truth is that Boston Dynamics may well take the robot market very soon with its robot platforms for logistics, warehouses, search and rescue, etc. Let's remember Hyundai is financing them, a company which has a lot of background already in robotics and research for factories etc. Robots are cool. And they won't take our jobs. They will create many jobs while helping us with the repetitive and boring ones.
