Instagram user Nathan Kanasawe was in a car on a northern Ontario street when he spotted a robot dog. The 23-year-old Canadian recorded the meeting, which has since gone viral.
The yellow and black robot dog is part of the Boston Dynamic Spot series. It has a long, rectangular body without a head and four legs that mimic the shape of a dog with knee-shaped “joints” that bend backwards.
“Local celebrity,” he wrote in the caption. “All of you… know it was being controlled by a guy off camera, it wasn’t just a walk around town.”
In the clip, the robot approached the vehicle. When human spectators spoke to him, he would direct his attention to them, walk back, stop, then continue his walk through the night.
“Hello, my friend,” one of the passengers in the car said to the robot as if it were a puppy. “Oh my God. I love you. I love you so much. Oh my God.”
“One of our Spot robots was recently caught on camera on a night walk with its manager, who is one of our business customers,” the press release says. “The customer was performing routine mobility tests on the robot and keeping it away from people as required by our terms of service. We are excited about the peaceful, productive and well-supervised uses of our robots for commercial applications such as power generation, construction and process manufacturing. ”
Spot is available for sale in Canada and Europe. The robot is designed to go where other robots cannot, as it can climb stairs and traverse difficult terrain, making it useful for performing tasks indoors and in remote locations.
