Boston Dynamics‘ growing robot army is getting ever more ready for its uprising. Watch as one of its SpotMini quadruped ‘bots uses its arm appendage to not only open a door, but to let his buddy out. They’re coming for us… it’s only a matter of time.
Tha developers of the world’s largest menagerie of creepy robots have taken wraps off of Handle, a 6.5 foot-tall research robot that can drive along at 9 mph and jump up to 4 feet in the air. Its ability to balance and negotiate terrain are especially impressive.
The folks behind robots like BigDog and AlphaDog are back with a smaller dog. SpotMini is designed for use around the home, and can not only act as a family pet, but can do chores, like doing the dishes and bringing you a beer. We only wonder if he poops batteries.
