If that "dog" looks familiar to you, you probably saw it doing neat tricks like opening doors. This video went crazy viral on social media last month and had netizens worrying that robots were slowly going to take over the world.
The four-legged machine can handle objects, climbs stairs, and Boston Dynamics expects SpotMini to operate in offices, homes and outdoors.
Jeff Bezos tweeted the photo of himself with SpotMini at Amazon's MARS conference, which is an annual invitation-only meeting on machine learning, automation, robotics and space exploration.
The Internet had a lot of thoughts on the robot dog:
