SPOT - robot from Boston Dynamics

Last week, I met SPOT- a robot from Boston Dynamics.

Usually, many things we see in Google campus are confidential and we can't shoot photos or videos etc but fortunately I was able to meet the Boston Dynamics team demoing their robot SPOT and was allowed to take photos, videos and they said I can post it online so here we go, woohoo :D

SPOT can go through the door too.

As you can see in this video (which is not by me), SPOT can climb steeper hills and stairs. Amazing!



Thanks to Boston Dynamics team for awesome demo :D
