  • Boston Dynamics’ Spot Mini robots work together to pull a truck

A pack of dog-like robots pulling a truck along a road has social media blowing up as people freak out over the impressive, yet unnerving, display of mechanical strength.

The robots work together, like a dog-sled team, and the coordinated thud thud thud of their robot paws will soon no longer be confined to the Boston Dynamics office.

"SpotMini is the quietest robot we have built". We've seen it navigate an office flawlessly, open doors thanks to a an arm attachment, and all while receiving abuse from its makers in an attempt to make it fail.

In the latest video, we see ten SpotMinis working in tandem to pull the box truck up a one-degree incline in the company's vehicle park.

Juventus shares slump after Champions League defeat

Boston Dynamics pointed out that the robot dogs were pulling the tuck around "one degree uphill, truck in neutral", but the footage is impressive nonetheless.

So why did Boston Dynamics carry out this demonstration?

Boston Dynamics wasn't immediately available for comment but said in the video's description that the robots are being developed for a range of applications.
