SpotMini goes down stairs by walking backwards.
Boston Dynamics says it will be manufacturing 1,000 SpotMinis per year by mid-2019.
SpotMini has a variety of fancy footwork and gaits, such as crawling, walking, trotting, and pacing.
SpotMini can stabilize its arm-head, while shaking its body around—a move inspired by chickens.
In a video, SpotMini is seen slipping on a banana peel. But don't worry: It didn't get damaged, and it can get up on its own.
SpotMini is not completely quiet, but it is one of the quietest robots Boston Dynamics has ever built.
