an entire pack of Boston Dynamics robot dogs

It only takes 10 Spotpower (SP) to haul a truck across the Boston Dynamics parking lot (~1 degree uphill, truck in neutral).

This is the first time I think I've seen Boston Dynamics mention that their products are going to be available for purchase. Usually it's just a proof-of-concept kind of video. I notice the power seems to be delivered through some stuff in the truck in this video. I wonder what the independent power usage is like now, and how much these things are expected to cost, or if it's more of a "Call for Pricing!" kind of deal.

From an earlier article: "Their noise signature is an issue – battery technology isn’t where it needs to be to meet the power requirements of larger systems, so they have been powered by traditional combustion engines, which are noisy."

I wonder how noisy animal muscles were when they were first evolving. Ever notice how quiet they are now?

I do wonder, like, how far can those doggos pull that truck? What is the extent of their range for doing anything, really? They always show us these videos, but can their activity in these videos continue for hours, or just minutes?

Our ragged little group poured out of the abandoned grocer and into the gentle ashfall with spirits as high as our packs were heavy. Finally we'd have enough canned food, hygiene products, and writing materials to get us through more than a couple days at a time, we could think long term—rig up a solar power system now that fuel was so scarce, build a greenhouse for a measure of self-sufficiency, maybe even set up an emergency radi—

And there it was, faint but growing, that clattering hum we came to know so well in the first days of The Doggening.

"Y.T. is the only person who can see it happen. Having easily penetrated airport security with her Kourier pass, she is coasting onto the apron near the cargo terminal. From here, she has an excellent view across half a mile of open runway, and she sees it all happen: the plane roars down the runway, hauling its door closed as it goes, shooting pale blue flames out its engine nozzles, trying to build up speed for takeoff, and Fido chases it down like a dog going after a fat mailman, makes one final tremendous leap into the air and, turning himself into a Sidewinder missile, flies nose-first into the tailpipe of its left engine.
The jet explodes about ten feet off the ground, catching Fido and L. Bob Rife and his virus all together in its fine, sterilizing flame.

When the attack came, it wasn’t from the direction of the noise. Alva screamed as hydraulic jaws clamped around her ankle and pulled her to ground. The others stood there, frozen in horror, while the dog dragged Alva away. The clattering has been a calculated distraction; the dogs were learning pack-hunting behaviors.

It probably would take a couple teams of 200 spelling each other. They’d all need to be neutered or spayed to avoid fights and other interruptions. They’d all have to be the usual sled dog size. Smaller is not going to work. Larger dogs are surprisingly fragile when they need to pull heavy stuff. Typical sled dogs are really tough. Still the large number of dogs would require enough human handlers that basically, I think draft horses would be a smarter choice unless we are considering moving this truck in some sort of Winter Hell-scape totally lacking in vegetation. Even then, Bactrian camels would be a very good choice, perhaps superior to dogs in not needing meat or fish to eat, superior to horses in terms of staying healthy in bad conditions, and stronger than many large horse breeds. They can somewhat forage if there is any vegetation and they are very strong animals, particularly bulls bred for pack - train use. If there is no vegetation, suitable fodder would be required. In fact Bactrian camels would be a smarter choice than robo-dogs or actual dogs.

Bactrian camels would be a smarter choice than robo-dogs or actual dogs.

The original BigDog was more on that scale; I wonder if they're too getting distracted by their own abstract robotics coordination problems and letting practicality slide for the moment. But on a paved surface like this where you have access to power I assume "use another truck" is generally going to be best towing solution anyway.

Hello everybody, it's your friendly neighborhood ventilator-dependent quadriplegic who really should be busy writing a very long essay right now. But here I am on the Internet instead, speculating about the future uses of dog-shaped robots because I really need a fleet of tiny robots to do my bidding. The labor of others is expensive and difficult to obtain for disabled people! I see robots such as this as a great equalizing technology. For someone like me, they'll never fully replace human caregivers as I need people capable of abstract thought, but robots could sure relieve a lot of the drudgery that goes into caregiving, and reduce the sheer amount of time it takes to get anything done. (Google "crip time" to get a sense of how disability affects the time it takes to do things.)

Looking through these videos, I can see that Spots are capable of putting glasses in the dishwasher, soda cans in the trash (though it didn't make sure it was empty first), and opening doors. I can further speculate that they'll be capable of sorting laundry and putting stuff in the washing machine, although I doubt they are currently capable of KonMarieing my clothes and putting them away in neat rows in the drawers (unless I get a team of them). With some work, I imagine one could program them to recognize and bring you a book, turn its pages, shelve them afterwards, etc.

But how? The videos don't show the process of programming or operating them. Are they voice controlled, or do I have to press a button somewhere? Can a layperson program them to do simple household tasks, or do you need an expensive "optional" programmer module and a CS degree? Will I need a team of engineers to visit my house and teach Spot how to wash my underwear?

Which leads me to the important question, is there any effort underway to train Spots as service dogs? Certainly they'll never be able to perform all of the functions of a service dog (like looking cute and being cuddly), but there are problems inherent in relying on a flesh and blood creature. Service dogs take years to train, often develop health problems of their own, and have the unfortunate problem of being mortal.

It's disabled people like me who will be the early adopters of these technologies, but are they being built with us in mind? I envision a future in which disabled people will be issued service robots instead of caregivers, and that will either be a disaster or lead to the liberation of the disabled.

All that was just to post this notice: Robot tester for hire, inquire within.

JFC that video was wayyyy scarier than the one linked in the OP. The way the first robot sat back on its heels and cocked its head/torso, considering, then summoned its packmate telepathically; and then the way THAT one came trotting up and unhesitatingly UNFURLED ITS CREEPY LONG REPTILIAN NECK. And then opened its maw and held it steadily, unwaveringly in place while its body adjusted position for the best predatorial lunge, like a f*cking velociraptor, tiny silver screw perfectly placed to imitate the shine of a beady eye ... urgkkk we're all gonna die.
