Meet Spot The..Robot Dog

 

Robot Dog

 

Say Hello To Spot The Robot Dog

 

Spot is not a Robot Dog toy or pet but has been built by Boston Dynamics, an engineering and robotics design company that were previously  best known for the development of Big Dog a four legged robot designed for the U.S. military.

 

It would seem that Big Dog now has a younger brother called Spot who is a four-legged robot designed to be able to take care of himself both indoors and outdoors.

 

Spot is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated; he has a sensor head that helps him navigate and negotiate rough terrain and he weighs about 160 lbs.

 

Check out the video below as Spot goes for a walk; do you find find this advancement in technology exciting or does it make you uneasy? 

 

Who got upset when Spot was kicked?!
