Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos walking with his dog is grabbing headlines, yes, you read it right! The surprise element being the dog is not a real one, but a robot. And like usual, the internet lost it. One of the world’s richest men tweeted a picture of him walking with a robot dog with the caption, “Taking my new dog for a walk at the #MARS2018 conference. #BostonDynamics” and social media is collective cannot get over it.
In what looks straight out of a sci-fi movie, the Amazon founder can be seen walking down a road alongside his robot dog at the company’s MARS conference in California. The robot’s name is SpotMini and has a metal body painted in yellow. A recent video of SpotMini showed it using an extendable arm to open a closed door. Another video on social media showed the robot playing bottle flip game with Bezos. There is also a video of Bezos playing ping pong with SpotMini.
