What better way to show off your new robot than by using them to haul a giant truck? That’s exactly what Boston Dynamics did to showcase their Spotpower robotic dog. Based on the SpotMini, this 66-pound robot can perform a variety of tasks, like climbing stairs, traversing rugged terrain and transporting up to 31 pounds. Best of all, the video announced that the SpotPower model will be available to the public for a “range of applications soon.” Read more for another video comparing the SpotMini to a competitor.
“Spot is just under three feet tall and has 3D vision, as well as 17 joints to help it move nimbly. SpotMini is all-electric and can go for about 90 minutes on a charge, depending on what it is doing, the firm says, boasting ‘SpotMini is the quietest robot we have built,'” reports The Daily Mail.
