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).
