Boston Dynamics – SpotMini

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Boston Dynamics has further cemented the eventuality that they’re the Cyberdyne Systems of the real world with the SpotMini. Soon these things will be wearing camouflage overlays that make them virtually-indistinguishable from real dogs, and they’ll serve as the perfect surprise attack wave of the eventual AI takeover.

Boston Dynamics – Atlas

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

I just finished my first playthrough of Fallout 4, so all I see is the earliest prototype for what will eventually be a long line of synths. The company’s name is even Boston Dynamics; that can’t be a coincidence, can it?

Meet AlphaDog, Boston Dynamics’ latest load carrying quadrupedal robot. This nightmarish fusion of machinery and the souls of abandoned canines can carry a payload of up to 400 lbs on 20-mile missions in rough terrain. It’s also extremely good at reorienting itself, looking as pissed as something without a face can as it does so, and the kicks that threw its predecessor, BigDog, for a loop are completely ineffective; shoving still works, thankfully. While it still looks like a monster from Silent Hill, at least this model doesn’t sound like a swarm of evil bees. Also, it kinda looks like an ATAT, which is always cool.
