Boston Dynamics’ Creepy Robot Dogs Pull a Truck

Author : admin | Monday, 22 April 2019

Step apart, reindeer — robot dogs are hauling this load.

 

In an ominous video titled “Mush, Spot Mush!” posted on YouTube Tuesday, robot maker Boston Dynamics showed off the sheer strength of its SpotMini quadripedal robot dog. The clip shows 10 specialized Spotmini derivatives called Spotpower hauling a box truck throughout a parking lot — and at a one degree incline.

 

The robot maker established in 2018 that it will start promoting SpotMini robot dogs to the public this year. The 66 pound robot can climb stairs, cross a wide variety of assorted terrain and carry 31 pounds.

 

Potential applications range from home use to private security. The caption of today’s video proclaimed that the Spotpower model will be sold to the public for a “ range of applications soon.”

 

What specifically those applications will look like and how much a Spotpower will move for is still confusing. But it’s an awesome feat of strength and agility that sets the bar for upcoming commercial robots.
