Google-owned Boston Dynamics has a robotic dog named Spot

37 sec read

We haven’t heard much from Google-owned Boston Dynamics in recent months but now the robotics company has unveiled its newest creation: Spot. Far more agile than the WildCat robot that helped make Boston Dynamics famous, Spot is a robotic dog that can walk and climb across tons of terrain and can even balance itself when someone tries to knock it over. 

Boston Dynamics, for those unfamiliar, is a company that builds and develops robots. They were also acquired by Google back in 2013, and recently the company has taken the wraps off their latest design – a robotic dog called Spot, which is also essentially a smaller and slightly more agile version of their WildCat robot. Spot weighs 160 pounds and is electrically-powered and hydraulically-actuated. The robot is able to walk, climb across all sorts of terrains thanks to its built-in sensor, and what’s interesting is that the robot will be able to balance itself even after repeated attempts at trying to kick it to throw it off balance, which you can see for yourself in the video above.
