Boston Dynamics' new robotic dog is adorable, yet horrifying

SpotMini: Boston Dynamics' new robotic dog has some new tricks, still looks scary

Great, this is just what we needed: robotic dogs. Boston Dynamics has been hard at work making some of the scariest robots outside of the movies, with the company showing off the latest version of their SpotMini robotic dog.



The new SpotMini dog looks much cleaner and more '2017-y' as the firm has used a proper body on the robotic dog, with movements that are scarily real. It seems very quiet, so you won't hear it sneaking up on you, which I don't know whether that's a good, or a bad thing. I'm still undecided on that, as robotic dogs are freaky as hell.
