Spot Boston Dynamics Robot

This Lifelike Robot Is Either the Coolest or Creepiest Thing You've Seen

It climbs, it runs, and it can't be kicked down. The future is coming faster than you think, and this robot is proof. "Spot" is a four-legged robot designed by Google-owned Boston Dynamics. In the video, Spot is seen climbing up stairs, trotting alongside a human, and self-balancing after it's been kicked down (cool feature, but we can't help feeling bad for the little guy). The 160-pound bot, which has a special sensor that guides it through rough terrain, is electrically powered and hydraulically engineered. In other words: we want one.
