Boston Dynamics robots scheduled to celebrate business acquisition – .


After being bought by Hyundai Motors, the Boston Dynamics robots were ordered to dance.

Apparently, Hyundai Motors and Boston Dynamics have combined Intelligent mobility the efforts will be supercharged. Everything from eye robots to military-grade dancing law enforcement droids could be in our future.


Smart, mobile, useful. How did the Spot test go with the French soldiers? Mortal?

Interesting engineering:

As part of the deal, Hyundai and Boston Dynamics expect their combined manufacturing strengths to enable mutual growth. Boston Dynamics is well known for its advancements in manufacturing. Their newest robot, Stretch, is specially designed to increase the efficiency of packaging and unloading materials.

So, will this acquisition lead to an army of robots in the mobility industry?

Not yet, but it offers incredible potential to advance transportation and travel.

Their video announcing the acquisition shows a blind man using the Spot as a sort of guide dog, which is made possible by the robot’s wide-angle vision, data mapping and sensors. Similar technology was experimented with at the University of California at Berkeley using the Mini Cheetah, a small animal-like robot created at MIT’s Biomimetics Lab. The Mini Cheetah uses a series of lasers to identify objects in the surrounding environment and guide a person around them. In addition, the Mini Cheetah can store data about the intended destination, allowing it to plot the easiest and safest route. It was also the first four-legged robot to do a backflip.
