Spot is a robot dog developed by Boston Dynamics that imitates real four-legged animals very well. Now he has been taught a new trick, and it’s a great idea. The machine doesn’t handle it perfectly, but the fact that Spot can do it is really interesting.
Boston Dynamics has been working for years on a robot that can do many activities. The company recently changed owners. The manufacturer decided that it would try to “teach” it something else that real quadrupeds can do.
The robot learned how to perform the fetch command. Boston Dynamics created a special model of the machine that allowed the robot to pick up a thrown ball and bring it to its owner.
