Overview

SpotMini can go where larger robots can’t. Its optional snake-like arm, which attaches where a real dog’s head would be, lets SpotMini do things like open doors.

The robot’s main frame has a quick-disconnect battery, stereo cameras in the front, side cameras and a rear cam, but it can also be upgraded with a series of attachments on the top, including an articulated arm. SpotMini’s development is motivated by thinking about something that could go in an office or accessible place for businesses purposes, or a home eventually.

Third-parties will be able to develop systems to mount to SpotMini for different applications. Currently, it has a surveillance package with special low-light cameras mounted on the back, there’s a camera mounted in the arm, and the computer can take user code.
