Mush, Spot, Mush!

❝ an ominous video titled “Mush, Spot Mush!” posted on YouTube Tuesday, robot maker Boston Dynamics showed off the sheer strength of its SpotMini quadripedal robot dog. The clip shows 10 specialized Spotmini derivatives called Spotpower hauling a box truck across a parking lot — and at a one degree incline.

❝ The robot maker announced in 2018 that it will start selling SpotMini robot dogs to the public this year. The 66 pound robot can climb stairs, cross a wide variety of different terrain and carry 31 pounds…

What exactly those applications will look like and how much a Spotpower will go for is still unclear. But it’s an incredible feat of strength and agility that sets the bar for future commercial robots.

Actually, we buy our dog’s favorite dog food at Tractor Supply. Is that supposed to be an omen of Things To Come?
