Boston Dynamics’ Robots Going On Sale Yet Nothing Is Certain

Boston Dynamics, a famous technology company, plans to mass-produce and sell its famous dog-like robots, but the details are not yet revealed.

Boston Dynamics has amazed the public with its famous human-like bots and robot dogs that can do stunts, and now the company is planning on making its signature bots commercially available.

However, no details of this plan are revealed, apart from the indefinite launch date to be sometime in 2019.

Basically, the plan involves the mass production of SpotMini- Boston Dynamics’ famous canine robots. The CEO of the company, Marc Raibert, has confirmed in April that Boston Dynamics will first bring out 100 models in the span of one year, perhaps commencing within the next two months.

The Spot-Mini will be available for purchase soon.

This news might sound familiar, as we have been through this before. The futuristic four-legged robots on sale once mentioned in an article back then in 2017, right after Boston Dynamics was sold to SoftBank by Alphabet (the parent company of Google).

Raibert’s announcement on May 2918 on Boston Dynamics’ robots going on sale once again appeared in an article. Only after two months, the name popped up in another article, with the plan of producing up to 1,000 bots every year by “July 2019”.

Raibert affirmed his intention to manufacture and commercialize SpotMini, with the 2017 acquisition giving the company the necessary boost to realize the idea. Ever since then, the awaited commercialization of SpotMini seems to have always remained on the headlines, keeping the expecting audience in suspense.

As reported, there has been a Boston Dynamics’ acquisition of a logistics company named Kinema Systems that could help with the automation of the company’s warehouses. So the good news is that the manufacturer is about to start, perhaps soon.

Still, that undecided deadline of “July 2019” can be delayed even further, and we’re anticipating even more news on SpotMini about to go commercially.
