Introducing “Spot” – Boston Dynamics newest robodog

Awww… Look at this little Google fella. How cute it is, nearly galloping up the stairs!

I bet the altruistic Spot from an alternative universe lives a happy life as an ambitious corporate coffee boybot, equipped with a sweet & delighful Pixar-like frontend interface driven by a devoted & humble AI. Our futures, however, are lost. All of them.

Spot is a four-legged robot designed for indoor and outdoor operation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. Spot has a sensor head that helps it navigate and negotiate rough terrain. Spot weighs about 160 lbs.

How is this not the Rat Thing?

It IS. IT IS THE RAT THING.
