Feel for Spot – Google’s creepy robot dog who gets a kicking from a bunch of nerds in this bizarre new video.
The four-legged piece of technology has been developed by Boston Dynamics, which the search engine giant bought in 2013.
Spot strolls through the office unmanned and bounds across hills before climbing a steep flight of stairs.
Then, in more disturbing scenes, developers violently kick the bot in a bid to knock it over. But it gets back up each time in a surprisingly human fashion.
What Boston Dynamic’s fleet of robots will be used for is largely unknown. But similar devices have previously been demonstrated as pack mules in the military.
