Boston Dynamics‘ robot, Spotmini, can already dance to songs and open doors. But the company isn’t done showing off cool tricks. In a newly released video, you can see 10 Spotpower bots – a beefed-up variant of Spotmini – teaming up to pull a truck across the road (with 1-degree inclination) with ease.
These robots will soon be ready for service: the company said that Spot robots are coming off the production line now, and will be available for a range of applications in the near future. It’ll be interesting to see if the firm can pull it off. Last year, Boston Dynamics‘ founder, Marc Raibert, had promised that Spotmini will be commercially available in 2019.
The comparison clip above shows how far Boston Dynamics’ tech has come over the course of a decade. We can’t wait to see what Spotmini might be able to do in the real world.
