Boston Dynamics has recently shown, how a robot called SpotMini is helping the other one to open the door using his mechanical hand. The new video shows how a robot tries to leave the room but a man hinders him with a hockey stick. He pushes the robot arm away from the door handle and when the mechanical dog manages to open the door, the engineer pulls him away with the leash attached to the body. SpotMini still manages to stay on its feet and get out of the room.
The ability to balance is one of the main features of the company robots. They are able to walk across different surfaces, from forest slopes to ice. When falling they are able to stand up and continue the movement. Atlas, the humanoid robot freely moves on two legs and makes a backflip in one of the videos.
Boston Dynamics engineers have earlier demonstrated the skills of their developments by kicking them and knocking out objects that robots were trying to raise.
The updated SpotMini model without a manipulator was first shown in November 2017. Modification with a mechanical arm makes the robot look like a creature with a reptilian head on a long neck. But in fact 3D cameras located at the front end of the case are responsible for the navigation of the robot.
We are hope that in the future robots will not want to take revenge on people for being kicked, because these were just strength tests.
