BOSTON, MA (WBZ-AM)--A Boston based robotics company has a new moon walking, twerking, dancing its little heart out robot dog named "Uptown Spot" who has become an internet star. The Boston Dynamics creation trips the light fantastic to Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk." By the way, Spot can also open doors.
While there’s no one specific job that the mini-robot is made for, it's creators say Spot has some real word applications besides busting a move on YouTube. For instance, critters like this fellow have the ability to find people stranded in the rubble after an earthquake or mudslide.
Uptown Spot will be Boston Dynamics first commercial product which will hit markets next year. The company is owned by Japanese conglomerate SoftBankfrom.
