Boston Dynamics Spot robot has moves like Jagger

Cool and creepy at the same time

Boston Dynamics has released a tribute to The Rolling Stones’ iconic music video for their 1981 hit “Start Me Up,” with the band members replaced by the company’s Spot robots.

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of The Rolling Stones’ Tattoo You album, Boston Dynamics has released a video featuring a quartet of Spot dogs dancing side-by-side to the original music video of Start Me Up, perfectly mimicking Jagger and the rest of the band members, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and Charlie Watts, every movement.

The video shows off Spot’s impressive mobility and fluidity of which the robots can move. Spot first took to the dancefloor in 2018 to dance to Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk, and if you compare it to the robots latest performance, the progress made by Boston Dynamics in just three years is incredible.

Earlier in the year, Hyundai completed its acquisition of the company for $1.1 billion, making it the third owner of Boston Dynamics over the past decade. Hyundai aims to use the firm to secure a leading presence in the field of robotics.
