I Shouldn’t Feel Weird About Them Kicking This Dog – But I Do

The dog in question is a robot named Spot, a smaller prototype of Google-owned Boston Dynamics’ Big Dog. Spot is 160 pounds and comes fully-loaded with running, climbing, and self-stabilizing capabilities – hence the kicking demonstrations. Thing is… Spot is so strangely life-like, we can’t help but feel a little weird about the whole thing.

Pending any sci-fi, I, Robot complications, Spot and his robo-pack could be a big help with search and rescue missions in disaster situations.
