Dog-Bot Is World's Most Advanced Rough-Terrain Nightmare
Like other Boston Dynamics robots, Spot can navigate rough terrain by itself, but it seems faster and more stable than its predecessors.By Jamal Andress | February 10, 2015
Boston Dynamics and its parent company, Google, continue to make robot animals that are innovative, incredible and frightening — all at the same time.
The robotics company is calling its newest creation, Spot, possibly after its other four-legged robot friend, Big Dog. Big Dog, dubbed by Boston Dynamics as the most advanced rough terrain robot on earth, is about 3 feet long and 240 pounds.
Spot is nearly 100 pounds lighter, and it seems, based on the video, to be much faster than its big brother.
