Here Spot!

Boston Dynamics launches Spot robot. And this interesting detail from the product page:

Add features and capabilities to Spot through its accessible GRPC-based API and Python client library.

Patiently awaiting a plugin from one of our developers... :lol:

If it can weed, chase off deer and scare the squirrels away from my nectarine tree, I'll be saving my pennies.

Re: Here Spot!

From an interview I found
The early adopter program is lease-based rather than a straight purchase, but there’s no shortage of customers who want to own their Spot outright. The cost of one of the robots varies, but think tens of thousands of dollars — this isn’t a hobby bot. “The general guidance is that the entire early adopter program is going to be about the price of a car, but how nice of a car depends on a lot,” said Perry.

I’m gonna have a hard time getting this one passed SWMBO :D
