SpotMini Gets Super Funky!

Many of you may have seen Boston Dynamics humanoid robot Atlas, doing parkour and been a little freaked out by how human its movements were. Well never fear because everyone’s favourite robot dog, SpotMini is here to entertain you by getting down to uptown funk!

SpotMini is a small four-legged robot that comfortably fits in an office or home.  It weighs 25 kg (30 kg if you include the arm). SpotMini is all-electric and can go for about 90 minutes on a charge, depending on what it is doing.  SpotMini is the quietest robot we have built.

SpotMini inherits all of the mobility of its bigger brother, Spot, while adding the ability to pick up and handle objects using its 5 degree-of-freedom arm and beefed up perception sensors. The sensor suite includes stereo cameras, depth cameras, an IMU, and position/force sensors in the limbs.  These sensors help with navigation and mobile manipulation.
