Last year, representatives of Boston Dynamics promised that in 2019 they will start selling their robots. And this year they finally announced more specific dates.
At the TechCrunch Sessions: Robotics & AI event, founder and CEO Marc Raibert said that their first commercial product would be the SpotMini robot dog, and showed a production version of the four-legged “pet.”
So far this is only a test version of the robot, but in July — August, mass production will begin. SpotMini will receive a new case, which will protect it from falls, cameras from all sides for a better view and keep the mechanical arm-manipulator.
First, plan to release only a hundred robots. How much it will cost such a “dog” – until they say, the price tag will be known in the summer.
