Watch Boston Dynamics robots dance to ‘Do you love me’
The MIT spinoff sells its lifelike robots to warehouses, police, utilities, laboratories and factories to perform tasks better and more safely than humans can.
To show off how far its robots’ skills have come, Boston Dynamics on Tuesday had its robots doing the twist, the mashed potato, and some seriously complicated dance moves that were one part impressive and one part eerie.
The company began selling its robotic dog Spot to US businesses in June for $74,500 each.
Spot, featured in the video with the more human-like Atlas robots and the wheeled Handle robot, is Boston Dynamics’ most famous product. The four-legged robot has garnered attention for the tasks it can perform, which include running, climbing stairs, and even reminding people to practice social distancing in the Covid-19 era. It’s generally used for inspections on construction sites or similar situations.
Atlas was a convincing dancer, performing agile jumps and high leg kicks in rhythm.
