Turns out you can always teach a robot dog new tricks.
Robotics company Boston Dynamics showed off the latest updates to Spot, its four-legged robot ‘dog’.
The upgraded Spot can open doors, grab objects, and – most impressively – charge itself by returning to the dock when its power gets low.
Boston Dynamics has announced three new products for Spot — Spot Arm, Spot Enterprise and Scout — that aim to increase the robot dog's functionality in hazardous, remote work sites https://t.co/5OU1m0hMJv

Wanna buy one? Spot is currently selling for just $74,500.
