Well, Boston Dynamics is at it again. The Google-owned robot maker today posted a YouTube video of its technology for the first time in nearly a year, and this time it’s more silly than scary.
“Happy holidays from Boston Dynamics,” a woman in a Santa suit says, sitting in a sleigh with wheels and getting pulled by a four-legged, antlered robot that looks a lot like Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot. Two other antler-wearing robots are in also walking in front of the sleigh-pulling robot.
Just watch the video:
And when you’re done, watch a Boston Dynamics two-legged robot wander around in the woods.
This is all impressive and maybe a little bit fear-inducing, but please keep in mind that many robots still have a lot to learn.
Hat tip to Gizmodo for posting the video.
