Google's Creepy New Robot Dog

Robotics company Boston Dynamics has a new four-legged addition to its family: a 160-pound quadruped named Spot. In this video the Google-owned company shows Spot gallivanting with a weird equestrian hop through office corridors, up concrete stairs, and along rocky hills with little trouble.  Spot has a sensor head that helps it navigate and negotiate rough terrain. Spot even keeps his balance after being kicked by one of its human overlords. You can almost hear the canine whimper over the drone of his hydraulics.

We hope in the future when robots run everything, when they see the people kicking them, they wont get angry. So just saying, Gruntig is against robot cruelty and we believe that we can all live peacefully together.
