Robots – I have continued to be amazed at what Boston Dynamics has been able to do with their robots. While this video of their SpotMini is not a technical marvel, it does show how flexible this robot is. In the video above it is performing to Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars.
The SpotMini is a quadruped, dog-like robot with a hand-like gripping extension. The SpotMini stands less than a meter (0.84 m) tall and weighs 25 kg (30 kg if you include the arm). The SpotMini is all-electric and can go for about 90 minutes on a charge, depending on what it is doing. The SpotMini is the quietest robot produced so far by Boston Dynamics.
