boston dynamics' spot mini is a clever robotic canine

boston dynamics’ redesigns the ‘spot mini’ quadrapedal robot and now it certainly has a few canine qualities. the masachussettes-based engineering company unveiled its first iteration of the giraffe-like robot in june 2016, that moved and looked like a cartoon character. the new model is more refined and has a smooth animal-like motion that could be mistaken as the real thing.

the latest evolution of boston dynamics’ ‘spot mini’quadrapedal robot replaces the giraffe-like claw/head with a headless design and bright, yellow plastic. the robotic dog has a softer and more compact design, which combined with a face-style sensor system where its face was originally, creates a machine that could  become a new robot pal, or a guard dog that can fend off unwelcomed guests — particularly as it stops, crouches and stares straight down the camera lens.
