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.Follow @gorkhapost
