Here's another project from Boston Dynamics’s M3 program. This 400-pound dog-shaped android was built to carry emergency supplies to civilians (or soldiers) in remote locations. It just recently learned how to follow humans via remote pilot: The operator uses a touchscreen device to trigger commands and control movements like how close the machine can walk next to a human. What happens if the mainframe goes haywire? Let’s just say you don’t want to be in front of AlphaDog when it occurs.
