Russians give dancing robot dog a gun

@ 2022/07/22
It is the Amercian way.

A Twitter video has been released showing a Boston Dynamics-style robot dog firing a submachine gun into targets.

The robot looks a lot like the Boston Dynamics Spot which was famous for dancing only it's got a gun and apparently it's ready to kill Tsar Putin's enemies.

Fortunately the robot dog doesn't seem to be able to handle the recoil of the gun well and the dog has to take a minute to get its balance back. We also don't know if the dog is firing on its own or if someone is off-camera pulling the trigger remotely.

The robot's feet, various ports, and its front are completely different from Boston Dynamics' Spot but there have been shedloads of knock offs of Spot and this could be one which has been adapted for terrorism. Analysts think the one in the video appears to be a UnitreeYusu "technology dog" selling on AliExpress for about $3,000. That price is minus the gun of course. The feet, port placement, and joint coverings are all the same. The robot also has strips of Velcro on either of its flanks.
