Boston Dynamics SpotMini Autonomously Navigating Around The Office (Including Stairs)

May 11, 2018

Because bad things come in twos, this is a vid-- "Threes. Bad things come in threes." Fine, we'll count the ATLAS robot and the teeth fingernails then. Because, like a properly cut sandwich, bad things come in triangles, this is a video of Boston Dynamics' SpotMini robot autonomously navigating around their offices to prove how just easily it could seek out and destroy a human target. Stairs? NO PROBLEM. And we've already seen them open doors. Basically almost nowhere is safe now and if you want in my underground bunker you have until Sunday to get here. And bring food -- I've pretty much eaten it all already. And, okay, there's still a little construction left to do. "Just how impenetrable is this bunker of yours, GW?" On a scale from 1 to 10? "Sure." It's a swing set.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Christian and n0nentity, who want you to imagine a horse-sized one of these things with an ATLAS on its back trying to lasso you. Doesn't sound like a picnic, does it?
