Amazon boss takes his robot dog for a walk


Posted on Tuesday, 20 March, 2018 | Comment icon 2 comments
Tech entrepreneur Jeff Bezos attended Amazon's annual MARS conference with a very unusual companion.
The invite-only event, which is typically attended by leading experts in the fields of artificial intelligence and robotics, is being held at the Parker Hotel in Palm Springs, California this week.

When Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos arrived on the scene on Monday, all eyes were on what he had brought with him - one of Boston Dynamics' sophisticated dog-like SpotMini robots.


This isn't the first time Bezos has turned heads upon arriving at the conference either - last year he turned up at the event in a giant robotic suit that looked like something out of the movie Aliens.

A video showing Boston Dynamics' SpotMini robot in action can be viewed below.

Hm does it want to sniff other robot dogs, and does it poop bolts and circuit boards ?

How about paying your workers a decent wage instead of wasting money on robotic dogs?
