Boston Dynamics will start to sell robots-dogs

Boston Dynamics' robots keep getting smarter - and soon they'll be available for purchase.

A video shared by Boston Dynamics on Thursday shows the bot in autonomous mode, effortlessly navigating indoor and outdoor surroundings, obstacles and stairs like a real-life pup.

To successfully navigate the campus, Boston Dynamics said the SpotMini had to be "manually driven" through the office spaces, so that it's onboard computer could build a virtual map of the area. "For instance, we have a surveillance package where we have special cameras that can mount on the back", Raibert said. "We have made 10 designs that are close to option for production". One of its more intriguing creations is the SpotMini robot which kind of looks like a dog.

The first version SpotMini walked, skated, and even placed items in the dishwasher.

Manchester City and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah have ended their remarkable Premier League seasons with a host of new records. All questions about the future on Friday were met with a straight bat - even his post-season plans.

Also in the beginning of the year there was a photo of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, strolling with one of the robotic dog by Boston Dynamics.

In another new video, the Humanoid Atlas robot - which is almost five feet tall - is seen jogging outside on grass and jumping over a log. The robot has also mastered the two-footed jump over a moderate obstacle, although it appears that climbing a tree will still help you evade the robots. The robot holds the door open, letting its sibling enter first, before trotting through the doorway itself.

Boston Dynamics was bought from Google's parent company, Alphabet, by Japanese firm SoftBank in August a year ago, but it looks as though developments are surging ahead. The price was not disclosed. At the time, Softbank said the acquisition would help it be at the forefront of "the next wave of smart robotics".
