A small robotic dog named “SpotMini” can act as a human assistant in home or office. Unlike other robots by Boston Dynamics, SpotMini isn’t designed to help people in a disastrous situation, but more meant to be a vaguely cute home or office robotic pet. However, is this cute robotic dog now being trained to fight back against humans?
The Robo-Dog That Could
An amazing video of SpotMini went viral after fighting off a human as he tries to open a door. Not only is this slightly uncomfortable and even a little creepy, but the real question is: Why are we teaching robots to fight back against humans?
