Secretive robotics firm Boston Dynamics has posted a new video to its YouTube channe on Monday showing off its SpotMini robo-canine, in which he can be seen opening a door all on his own and hold until another enters the door.

In the 45-second video, titled ‘Hey Buddy, Can You Give Me a Hand?’ a SpotMini walks over to a door before realizing it can’t get through.

Another SpotMini quickly comes to his rescue and extends his clawed arm, which he uses to grab the door handle.

The robot then grabs the handle, turns it, and pulls back the door. Using one of its front legs, the robot manages to hold open the door as the claw releases the handle and pens the door fully.

The SpotMini is seen holding open the door as his fellow robo-dog friend then casually walks through the door.

GUANGZHOU — The world’s first passenger drone named EHang 184 has made its first public flight in China on Tuesday, taking off from Guangzhou City, capital of south China’s Guangdong province.

The electrically powered Ehang 184 can carry a single passenger weighing up to 100 kg for a 23-minute flight at sea level at a speed of 100 km per hour, the company said.

The Ehang 184 series is the world’s first passenger drone capable of carrying a single person at up to 130 kilometers per hour and in force 7 typhoon conditions, China Daily reported citing the company as saying.

Hu Huazhi, founder and CEO of Ehang, founded the company in 2014, and since then more than 150 technical engineers have conducted thousands of test flights, including a vertical climbing test reaching up to 300 meters, a load test flight carrying about 230 kilograms, a routed test flight covering 15 km and a high-speed cruising test that reached 130 km/h.

The newly developed device requires passengers to fasten their seat belts as the automated flight system then takes over.

The Ehang 184 AAV will still see further improvements, according to Hu.

“These manned test flights are just the latest in a series of tests to ensure that the Ehang 184 AAV will be safe and ready for public use in the near future,” Hu said.

Public use of passenger drones, also known as drone taxis, has yet to become a reality and fully depends on improvements in technological innovation and implementation of supportive policies, he said.
