They look like they’ve scampered out of a thriller — sleek, four-legged robots vaguely resembling dogs, flinging open doors and evading attacks from the humans controlling them.
And for the first time this week, videos posted to YouTube by the robotic dogs’ creators, Boston Dynamics, show the not-so-cuddly canines prancing around autonomously.
The videos comes just three months after a Feb. 12 video of a robotic dog opening the door and escaping with its friend went viral, sparking headlines such as, “Boston Dynamics’ dog robot can open up doors now and WTF we’re all dead” and “Robot dogs OPENING DOORS is one of the scariest things you will see all day.”
SpotMini robots, first unveiled by Boston Dynamics in June 2016, could become commonplace following CEO Marc Raibert’s announcement Friday at a conference that his company will begin selling the robots to businesses next year. They might appear outside construction zones — surveying the sites and collecting building data — or outside offices, where they could use their cameras to provide security. They could also be used to get into hard-to-reach spaces, such as the stairwells of skyscrapers, where they could check for explosives or “bad things” that shouldn’t be there, Raibert said.
