SpotMini: Boston Dynamics to market its robot dog very soon



If you're reading our columns, you've already seen Boston Dynamics' robotic creations. Prepare your pennies, a model will soon be put up for sale.

Boston Dynamics is proud of its SpotMini. Last week, we shared with you their latest video showing a pack of this robotic dog dragging a truck. Mark Raibert, the president of the firm has just announced that the quadruped will return to production as early as July!

Those who already see swarms of robots on the streets should be reassured, only a hundred copies are planned. Some devices are already out in the open, but they are actually "beta" models, designed to perform the latest tests.

The U.S. firm says the final version will carry better components, which will make it even stronger. Good news when you know that falls are common. Five cameras will embellish the whole so that the robot can see in each direction. Two will be placed in the front while the other sides will be entitled to one.

Be aware that this robotic dog of about 25 kilos is capable of working as a team, which opens up a whole bunch of possible applications in some professional environments. It has an articulated arm equipped with a stabilization system allowing it to remain perfectly fixed even when it is in motion. The machine will also be fully electric and the announced range caps at 90 minutes.

A companion that could therefore prove useful, but whose price has not yet been announced. Given the concentration of technology it represents, one imagines that it will not be destined for all scholarships.
