Google-owned Boston Dynamics released a video of their latest robot dog "Spot". The robot wanders the hallways, climbs stairs, and navigates rocky terrain outside the office building. But things get scary at 28 seconds into the video when someone tries to kick "Spot" over. The robot shows remarkable agility, scrambling in an incredibly life-like way to stay upright. And it succeeds.
The description of the video reads, "Spot is a four-legged robot designed for indoor and outdoor operation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. Spot has a sensor head that helps it navigate and negotiate rough terrain. Spot weighs about 160 lbs."
Dear Google, please use your unstoppable robot dog only for good and not to take down the human race.
And dear Boston Dynamics team members, for the love of everything you hold dear STOP KICKING THE UNSTOPPABLE ROBOT DOG!
