    Why? Is it to replace those stunt performers? But still why I'm pretty sure people come to watch those performers because of talent not because of some programing

    To be honest, I dislike this idea.
    Sure, I love the effort put Into the robots, but I think far more than half of these stunts are impressive because a person is actually doing them, that they have the coordination and the dexterity to so something most people are unable to do. You don't exactly have that amazement with a robot, because it was a bunch of gizmos and tech to make it do the stunts nearly perfect all the time.

    So now when the robot uprising happens, they'll have robot ninjas.
    Edit: And if they first use it for the Pirates Of The Carribean attraction, then that will make it a robot ninja pirate.

    please realize that 100% of people's jobs will be lost sooner or later. There is absolutely nothing that an AI and/or a robot won't be able to do one day. For now, it's a matter of price and technology. In the future, 100% of people could be potentially unemployed. And that's great: all we must do is realize it's time we change our idea of society. There is no reason to work if someone/somehting else can do it in our place. We can enjoy our short lives and leave the hard work to the immortal machines. Of course we need to get rid of money in orde to do so. Everyone has to live without a work, so our society has to evolve too. Can you imagine a world without money? can't you? then watch Star Trek!

    Like Google Glass we will entertain this silly notion that we need to be jacked into the internet 24/7 and robots need to take over all of our work. After the reality sets in, hopefully we will realize that humans are the most important and just because a robot can do it doesn’t mean anyone will actually want to watch the artificial reality. We need to stop being so self denigrating.

      Except in this one it makes the job easier and safer.
      It's not about using robots just because they can, it's using robots for faster, safer, and more efficient jobs. Take bomb disablers, they're using robots now, so, less casualties.
