For now, we have very little information on what Spot’s purpose is, let alone how it works or its specs. The company merely wished to treat us with a teaser, it would seem, with this video on Youtube. But even then, it’s pretty clear that the conjoined efforts of Google and Boston Dynamics is reaching for a specific goal: smaller, more agile robots for everyone to enjoy and benefit from. With this will likely come the prospect of a very unique, perhaps even affordable market for advanced robotics – whether it be for the everyday consumer or for global military establishments. Whatever the future holds, Spot is just the beginning!
