Boston Dynamics notch up the freakiness

Alright, this is just plain scary now. We saw the oh-my-god dog robot things just a week ago, but Boston Dynamics have decided to go and attack one as it’s doing the clever door-opening trick.

What freaks me out is the natural movements of this thing. The way it squats down and balances so naturally, just like a real dog. Y’know, a real.. umm.. headless dog with an arm coming out of its neck.

All perfectly normal this. Nothing to see here…

Oh, by the way, the robot dog is actually called SpotMini and the guys at Boston Dynamics must’ve already got some complaints from the YouTube commenting nutters, because they’ve had to put this at the bottom of the video…

Note: This testing does not irritate or harm the robot.

It’s a strange new world folks..
