Is This What Takes Us All Out?

I recently posted a video showing how humans at Boston Dynamics have created robots that can turn handles to open doors. (No, we didn't learn anything from Jurassic Park.)

As it turns out, we were not only teaching these machines to escape the lab, we were also teaching them how to resist human interference. I'm seriously beginning to wonder about the people building these robots. Are they dense? Do they know something I don't? Are they robots themselves?

The video below shows the same door-opening robot with a human attempting to restrain it. Guess who wins?
