Boston Dynamics has done it again- they’ve unveiled a robot that approaches the uncanny valley to give us the heebie jeebies. This robot is called Spot, because he’s kind of like a dog. In fact, he’s the little brother of their BigDog robot. The difference is that Spot runs on electric power instead of gasoline, so he can be used indoors as well as outside. And he, I mean it, weighs only about 160 pounds. Spot joins BigDog, AlphaDog, Atlas, Petman, RHex, Wildcat, Sand Flea, and Cheetah (all from Boston Dynamics) among our new robot overlords. -via Geeks Are Sexy
