If you are a robot enthusiast, a trip at the popular Boston Dynamics may be the best thing ever.

In Boston Dynamics, you’ll see a lot of fascinating robotic inventions that look like they came straight from science fiction films.

First off, the company is well-known for the BigDog, a quadruped robot designed primarily for the United States Army and funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Another of their famous invention is the DI-Guy, a software for realistic human simulation.

As you can probably picture, the engineering and robotics design company is a real playground and paradise for anyone who loves machines. One can only imagine that working there can be super exciting – unless, of course, you are a robot.

Testers kick and shove the robots to test their strength and reaction.

As you can see on the video below, robots there are pushed, shoved, and hit by wrecking balls in order to test their stability and durability.

Some robot models are even hit by wrecking balls.

This footage allows us to have an insider’s look on what’s going on inside the Cambridge, Massachussetts-based tech center and it’s extremely interesting.

Do you know what would be funny though? I imagine it would actually be hilarious if some animal rights activists protest against Boston Dynamics’ practice since some of the bots are really realistic-looking.

How would you feel if your neighbors often stole packages delivered on your doorstep? I’m assuming you’d be pretty pissed off.

That is exactly how Eric, a homeowner from Las Vegas, felt but instead of reporting the act to the police, he figured he’d teach them a lesson himself.

What he did was absolutely epic – he set up a camera and made a decoy box to catch the thief. The twist here, however, is that the box did not contain any goodies but some really nasty stuff.

Who knew a dolphin can have separation anxiety issues too? Well given that they are some of the most intelligent animals on earth, they can be very expressive. This must be the reason why humans generally find them cute or adorable.

They are known for their peaceful nature too. They can be trained easily and are quite friendly with humans. Perhaps too friendly, that in this video one dolphin doesn't want his newfound female friend to leave just yet. He expressed this none other than by nudging the woman's behind repeatedly. The woman and the other tourists laugh away in jest at the uncommon gesture.

Watch the dolphin plea for more playtime in this video
