Boston Dynamics' spot aids social distancing

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Singapore is trying a new way to get its residents to stay away from each other.

On Friday, the government announced it would start deploying Spot, Boston Dynamics' famous yellow and black canine robot, at one local park.

The four-legged robot "dog" will patrol the area starting this weekend and broadcast a pre-recorded message to visitors to remind them of the importance of social distancing, authorities said.

The device will also be equipped with cameras that will scan the surroundings and help officials estimate the number of people gathering in parks, they said.

It would've sounded better with RoboCops voice.

i think it is more than just pat on a back, i'm sure they get kickbacks donations from companies who got contracts building servicing operating these things

This is in fact a disguised alien invasion with these robot dogs being the first foot soldiers. Netflix War of the Worlds cyborg dogs

Those things creep me out. Probably because of how many similar looking things I've been attacked by in video games throughout most of my life.
At least they aren't that fast, nor do they have guns mounted on them. Yet.

Kind of creepy - it has no face or head.

Creepy as hell.  How could one destroy such a thing?
