Boston Dynamics Shares Worrying Video Of Robot Dog Opening Door Completely By Itself

Boston Dynamics’ collection of robots seem to only exist for one purpose: to terrify humanity.

Well in keeping with this tradition the robotics company has released yet another video showing the new and improved capabilities of SpotMini, its cute-but-definitely-still-scary robot dog.

In the video, a standard SpotMini approaches a door and sees that it is shut. Rather than simply walking away, however, it moves back making way for a new-and-improved SpotMini that comes with its very own robotic arm.
This new robot then sees the door, lines itself up with the handle and with effortless simplicity opens the door allowing both it and its companion to walk through.
