WATCH: ‘Robodog’ by Boston Dynamics now looks more streamlined, housebroken

Boston Dynamics has revealed its latest work on robotics with a preview video of the new and improved SpotMini.

The four-legged robot now comes with a yellow plastic shell and actually appears more housebroken.

Compared to the footage released in 2016 during the robot’s testing phases, this 2017 version has a more streamlined look. It may have been influenced by Boston Dynamics’ new owners, Japanese company Softbank.

One example of Japanese aesthetics when it comes to making friendly-looking robots would be Sony’s latest version of the Aibo robodog.

The end of the 2016 footage showed off a SpotMini encased in white plates. It appears that Boston Dynamics also managed to shave off a few pounds from the SpotMini since then.
