Robots Trim the Christmas Tree

What could be more festive than watching the family pets gather ’round the Christmas tree? Having them complete the tree trimming, of course! Your dogs might work collaboratively, but they would more likely take the ornaments off than to put them on a Christmas tree like this group of Spot robots. They are all good boys, and deserve all the head scritches and lithium grease treats you can give them. Until they turn on us. Yeah, yeah, I know- that would violate Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics, but a robot is only as good as its programmer. Let’s not think about that too much right now.

This is the new Christmas greeting from Boston Dynamics. Be sure to keep watching for the blooper at the end, which is bit comforting to see because we’re not really ready for robots to be perfectly programmed all the time. However, I’m slightly disappointed that they didn’t include a clip of Spot lifting its leg to relieve itself on the tree. -via Reddit
