Watching how rapidly evolving robots produced by the company Boston Dynamics – a very exciting lesson. During each new demonstration, engineers surprise us with more and more sophisticated tricks, to which they train their mechanical creations. At this time, we suggest you look at the robot SpotMini, which not only learned to open locked doors, it also got an additional limb and is now able to work together with other robots.
Last November, Boston Dynamics first demonstrated to the world its new robot SpotMini. We even published this short video on our website. Since then, about this dog-like creature, we almost did not hear anything. Up to this day. The updated version of the robot has got an additional manipulator with which it is able to open doors, take and lift objects, help yourself to overcome various obstacles on the way and do many other things previously inaccessible to him.
As you can see, the video is called “Hey, buddy, could you help me?” In the frame simultaneously appear two robots, one of which is equipped with a manipulator. It is he who opens the door and holds it until the second robot passes through the doorway. Manipulator for the robot was created by Japanese company SoftBank, which since June 2017 belongs to Boston Dynamics.
