What do we know about Boston Dynamics?
Boston Dynamics was formed in 1992 as a spin-off from the premier Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It was then bought by the X division of Alphabet in 2013, before going to Softbank in 2017. Earlier this month, the company was purchased by car giant Hyundai for $1.1 billion.
The firm has since been working tirelessly to create life-like, powerful and strong robots designed for the commercial industry.
Nonetheless, Boston Dynamics’ typical research is centered on making its machines tough, flexible, and able to stand on their own two feet, or four, but the latest video ‘Do You Love Me’ shows a celebratory side of the robotics firm.
