See Spot. See Spot Run. See Spot Get Kicked. See Spot Keep Running. Run, Human, Run!

I love the robots of Boston Dynamics (now part of Google), and by "love them," I mean "am chased by them through Terminator-style dreams." Their newest model is Spot, a 160 lb. robot the size of a very large dog which has no problem going up and down stairs, steep hills, or uneven forest ground. In other words, it can follow you...anywhere.

It also can't be distracted by little things like a direct kick from a grown man. Sure, it's kind of cute and I don't recommend going around and kicking robots that may one day hold a grudge, but I'd still like the option.
