Boston Dynamics has been selling its Spot robot dog to select research facilities for around a year now, but today, the company announced that businesses in the United States are able to purchase it directly from their website. At $74500, Spot’s modular platform is designed to be easily-configurable using a number of accessories and add-ons available. Read more for a video showing how it works and additional information.
Around 150 lucky research facilities managed to get Spot under a short-term lease under Boston Dynamics’ Early Adopter Program, and many used the robots to document construction progress, monitor remote or hazardous environments, as well as provide situational awareness. They were used in a variety of areas, including power generation facilities, decommissioned nuclear sites, factory floors, construction sites, and laboratories.

At Boston Dynamics, we have spent decades creating and refining robots with advanced mobility, dexterity and intelligence because we believe agile robots can solve a broad range of real world problems. The combination of Spot’s sophisticated software and high performance mechanical design enables the robot to augment difficult or dangerous human work. Now you can use Spot to increase human safety in environments and tasks where traditional automation hasn’t been successful,” said Marc Raibert, chairman and founder of Boston Dynamics.
