BostonDynamics Robot Dog

What’s the story behind the GIF of a nightmarish robot dog opening a door?

A man’s best friend, or fiend?

The robot dog we first saw stacking plates in a dishwasher has now graduated from its servitude to opening doors for itself and another robotic mate – excitingly, they’re probably now planning how this new skill fits into the destruction of the human race. See into our cold, metallic, dead future by watching the above gif again and again.

The Boston Dynamics SpotMini can be seen opening the door with an extendable hydraulic arm and clamp in the short video. Past video clips show their other creations, like the BigDog made for the U.S military, performing simple tasks. A marked difference here is the almost-intelligent way the SpotMini deciphers the door’s location, zones in on the handle and, quite politely, holds the door while maintaining its balance. All these small abilities seem to reflect a pretty advanced autonomous system.

It’s quite unlike the group’s Atlas robot, a more humanoid machine that barreled around quite clumsily in a video from 2016. This is the second SpotMini version Boston Dynamics has shown to the public since 2016 – it’s been made a lot cuter with a new, bright yellow paint job.

Artists deserve respect even if you do not like their work; abstain from any negative prejudices! The commentary is a understanding analysis. Thank you
