A small army of Boston Dynamics' dog-like robots have been filmed hauling a truck through a parking lot.
Known as SpotMini, this four-legged contraption has become something of a celebrity in recent years thanks to videos showing it performing a wide range of tasks and balancing acts.
This latest footage shows more of the robots than ever before - ten of them to be exact - all working together to haul a large truck through the parking lot outside Boston Dynamics' headquarters.
Each robot is 0.84 meters tall and can carry a payload of around 14kg.
What's interesting is that these robots will actually be available for companies to purchase in the near future, meaning that they are no longer just a work-in-progress.
"It only takes 10 Spotpower (SP) to haul a truck across the Boston Dynamics parking lot," the firm wrote in the caption for the video on YouTube.
"These Spot robots are coming off the production line now and will be available for a range of applications soon."
