Boston Dynamics (Softbank) “Spot” robot

It’s an exciting time at the intersection of robotics, computer vision, AI, machine learning, deep learning/neural networks and 3D printing. We roamed MIT’s campus earlier this week as we were on site for a 3D printing class. While unsuccessful in our quest to 3D-print a robot of our own, we did spot a few delivery bots on campus. Below are snippets of content we found interesting about one of MIT’s more famous spin-outs, Boston Dynamics. We are working to get founder Marc Raibert on the TEK2day Podcast. The Boston Dynamics robots operate much like an autonomous vehicle, leveraging LiDAR technology to power “vision” and spatial awareness.
