@teknari I noticed, too bad. I'm curious for the price. Would it be worth it ti have a robotic beer-carrier for festivals?

@stevenroose

Probably if you just put them in a room where people could interact would be a big hit.

I'm picturing somebody using one like a mechanical bull you would see in an American bar... spot surfing!

Spot does sort of sit in the valley of the uncanny, the way it moves just seems too... natural(?) in some ways. I think that might be part of what makes me feel uneasy while watching that video. That SPOT.PROTECT at the end didn't help though

@htimsxela @teknari If the natural-ness of spot makes you uneasy, you definitely shouldn't see the other Boston Dynamics videos. They have robots that run like pumas, super naturally. Their robots are really crazy and they seem to improve fast.

@stevenroose @teknari I've seen them as well, and I agree, super crazy, and they've improved a lot in the last few years. I guess it won't be that long until we see them deployed IRL for ourselves now
