Say hello to fi-dough!
Boston Dynamics, which created “Spot”— a robot dog which can run, unlock and open doors, pick itself up, operate in a variety of weather and challenging terrain and even dance — is selling its futuristic creation to the public for a whopping $75,000.
Orders can be placed via the company’s website, which notes, “Spot goes where wheeled robots cannot, while carrying payloads with endurance far beyond aerial drones. With 360° vision and obstacle avoidance, the robot can be driven remotely or taught routes and actions to perform autonomous missions.”
One Spot is currently patrolling a farm in New Zealand, while others are ensuring social distancing in Singapore and other tourist hot spots.
And while Spot is expensive —it’s a bargain in comparison with a Tibetan mastiff puppy, which, according to CNBC, sold in 2014 for a whopping $2 million in China.
