The agency released footage of him tying up a truck for 10 of his 10 headless robodogs. If you’ve ever wondered what it looks like to be a cute intelligent fluffy sled dog in a dystopian horror film, there is an answer to Boston’s dynamics.
The bizarre creation of Boston Dynamics can ultimately run like a real-life dog. It can pick things up, climb stairs, and even open doors dubbed the SpotMini. According to the company, the robot “fits comfortably in any office or home” and it is “the quietest robot we have built”. Perhaps one day we will each have our own responsible techno-canine.
As well as being efficient, SpotMini is strong, as shown in the new video from Boston Dynamics. Together, a strong team of 10 K9s is pulling a huge truck across the ground. Towards the end of the video, you can see them standing together before starting work.
“These spot robots will now be on the production line and will soon be available for a variety of uses.” The company wrote on YouTube, “It takes just 10 Spotpower (SP) to lift a truck across the Boston Dynamics parking lot neutral 1-degree climb, neutral truck.”
The robot has a number of built-in cameras that allow it to understand and navigate its environment. The robot is 0.84 meters (33 inches) tall and weighs 30 kg (66 pounds). It can carry a maximum weight of 14 kg (31 lbs) and works up to 90 minutes before expiration and recharging.
But don’t panic, these robots come in peace. The goal is to make machines easier for us to assist in our work at home, at work, and outside. And if you’re thinking that the robots that pull these vehicles look as unusual as the slip-tanning minions of a certain juicy red-fat guy, you’re not alone.
