The creators of the SpotMini - the four-legged (and zero-headed) robot that is gaining global fame for its increasingly sophisticated skills - are ready to make them commercially available.
"SpotMini is in pre-production now", Raibert said.
If you found yourself trembling with fear at the sight of Boston Dynamics' updated SpotMini dog-like robot when it bounded into view last November, then you're going to suffer a full-on meltdown when you see the latest version.
It's unclear who will be able to buy them, and the cost has not yet been revealed. "We have made 10 designs that are close to option for production. We've built them in house but with help from contractor/manufacture type people". Following on from the viral success of the dog that opened doors and went downstairs, the robotics company Boston Dynamics has now released a video of a model which can run with eerie similarity to a human.

In this instance, SpotMini uses cameras to autonomously navigate through an office and lab facility, including walking up and down stairs and navigate obstacles.
Also in the beginning of the year there was a photo of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, strolling with one of the robotic dog by Boston Dynamics. The videos it has released of the SpotMini have shown the robot navigating around an office on its own, opening a door for a second SpotMini robot, and even resisting interference by a human. The robot has also mastered the two-footed jump over a moderate obstacle, although it appears that climbing a tree will still help you evade the robots. The terrain outside is uneven, and elevated at certain points.
Boston Dynamics was bought from Google's parent company, Alphabet, by Japanese firm SoftBank in August a year ago, but it looks as though developments are surging ahead.
