Boston Dynamic’s New SpotMini Robot is Incredibly Agile! (And Cute!)

Just wait until you see it slipping on a banana peel! :)

SpotMini is a new smaller version of the Spot robot that weighs 55 lbs dripping wet (65 lbs if you include its arm.) SpotMini is all-electric (no hydraulics) and runs for about 90 minutes on a charge, depending on what it is doing. SpotMini is one of the quietest robots we have ever built. It has a variety of sensors, including depth cameras, a solid state gyro (IMU) and proprioception sensors in the limbs. These sensors help with navigation and mobile manipulation. SpotMini performs some tasks autonomously, but often uses a human for high-level guidance.

  1. Soon the “robot dance” will have to change its name… For robots don’t move like this anymore. Or not for much longer.
