Boston Dynamics’ New Robot – ‘Spot’ The Dog
Ryan Simmons / 2 years ago
Boston Dynamics, a company now owned by Google, has a new robot to join their other creepy animal-like bots. He/she/it is called Spot, just like the name you might give to a dog. Spot is much smaller compared to their other robots and it also has a body quite similar to that of a dog.
The new bot is much more nimble across rough terrain compared to its older brother, ‘BigDog’. Spot can also climb stairs and run at quite a fast pace. It’s also pretty good at taking kicks from evil humans, recovering, quite eerily, in much the same way a dog would. Well, a dog would probably try to attack back, while Spot can’t (for now, that is).
Watch the video below to see Spot alongside some of its family members, all of them in training before they take over the human race.
