There's A New Robot That Can Skateboard

Leo was developed by a team of researchers at Caltech's Center for Autonomous Systems and Technologies, and he is the first robot that uses multi-joint legs and propeller-based thrusters to achieve a high level of control and balance.

I can't tell if I'm impressed or terrified of where this is all leading. Where do you stand on this issue? (Obviously, because we can't fly like Leo) ...
