"Dog-drawn carriage"? Boston Power Robot Dog has been played a new trick by foreigners.

[gearbest News] according to foreign media reports, Adam Savage, a former host, actor and industrial designer of MythBusters on the Discovery Channel, has built a small one-man carriage so that he can sit leisurely in the carriage and let a Boston-powered Spot robot dog pull him around the corner. Let us pray that this belittling of the "dog" will not lead to resistance from artificial intelligence.

Savage spent five days crafting the strange-looking minivan in his workshop, which he described as "steampunk, Victorian and funerary". As can be seen in the picture, you also need to wear an old-fashioned top hat when riding in a "dog-drawn carriage" to match the overall style.

Obviously, the Boston Dynamics Spot was not produced to do this kind of unlined manual work, nor was it designed for it, otherwise they could have turned the Spot into the form of a horse or a cow. In order to pull a rickshaw by dogs, Savage also built an interface program and needed the remote help of at least two people. Since most of Savage's weight is shared between the two wheels, it doesn't take much force to pull him, but only if he needs to make some adjustments with the help of the program.

Boston Dynamics officially launched Spot Robot Dog last September, and now it has realized its value in a number of areas, such as construction sites or oil rigs.
