Meet Boston Dynamics’ streamlined SpotMini



Boston Dynamics hasn’t talked much since it changed hands from Google’s ailing robotics wing to the deep pockets of SoftBank, but the cutting-edge robotics firm happily gave the world a sneak peek of what it’s been working on in the meantime. The company posted a 24-second teaser trailer showcasing a sleek new version of its latest offering, the electric-powered SpotMini.

We’ve reached out to the company for more information on the project, but BD always plays things pretty close to the vest. It also knows how to ride a good viral video for all it’s worth. Meantime, what we’ve got to work with here is a really quick video of the updated robot doing a familiar bit of dressage across a newly mowed lawn, quickly staring down the camera and then sauntering off behind a wall.
