Tyler Cowen had a similar post recently comparing world 1.0 vs world 2.0.

Combine this with virtual reality and Starlink's low latency broadband and you've got a remote workforce that can be anywhere doing any job.

Yup, why I bought SoftBank ;) The Collapse Future and The Jetsons Future are both accelerating towards us. Neither will be evenly distributed in my lifetime.

The Spot robot in the video is available for purchase at the actuarial/ financial equivalent of 2.5 UK human life years lost = approximately 10 Jacobs. Electronic modules are very inexpensive so you can build your own not-so-cool robot for much less money. The greatest difficulty is that most humans who are good at making robots aren’t very good teachers. So far, I’ve had to combine two different tutorials, 3 books, and a course out of Moscow to make any progress with my project.
