The four-legged walking robot "SpotMini" with a yellow body appears at the beginning. However, this child is not a new robotIt was announced as of 2017Thing.

I walked to the point of approach, but I faced being blocked by a blue door in front of my eyes.

"I was troubled ... ..." a dog looking at the situation ... ... a type robot. Boston · dynamics is hands-on as well as "staging" of this story.

Suddenly, when I send a signal to the other side of the screen just as "Oooh, come here" ....

Another SpotMini-kun appeared. On top of the body, something like a black arm is loaded.

Aiming at the door just as "Hmm, this guy" ......

I will extend something like an arm like "Kuun" like a head.
