Boston Dynamics is not a newcomer in the field of robotics. The company was founded by Marc Raibert in 1992, but initially operated under the auspices of MIT.
Today, Boston Dynamics is an integral part of the Hyundai conglomerate, but over the course of thirty years, it has had other famous owners, including internet giant Google.
Over time, the company has become a leader in the field of robotics. Its most famous products include the robotic dog Spot and humanoid Atlas.
For a long time, people have been able to admire what these creations can do through videos on the internet.
However, not everyone watched these videos with a light heart, especially when the creators of Spot tried to demonstrate how well the "dog" could maintain balance by pushing and kicking it.
This caused anxiety in some more sensitive people, even though it is just a pile of metal and a few chips.
Since 2020, the company has decided to start selling both of these products, Spot and Atlas, to the general public.
For a while, they could even be purchased in our geographical region.
There are many robotic dogs that have been successful in world markets, but Spot is not a toy, but a highly sophisticated machine that can do much more than just be cute.
It can easily climb stairs, move backward, and even overcome various smaller obstacles on its own. It can even open doors by itself.
It is not an autonomous robot that works completely independently. It can handle some tasks on its own, such as crossing obstacles, but it will not do anything more without a tablet remote control.
Various sensors and camera systems are installed on Spot's body, allowing this robotic dog to function as an explorer in places where it is dangerous for people to be, such as searching through the rubble of houses or moving through contaminated areas.
