Google buys robotics company Boston Dynamics

Boston Dynamics was founded in 1992 by former MIT professor Marc Raibert. They’ve got deep expertise, especially in walking and running robots. This is a huge acquisition for Google, giving them a distinct edge in this space. It’ll be interesting to see what they have in mind.

Here’s a link to the Boston Dynamics YouTube channel. Don’t be surprised if one of these comes knocking on your door one day. Gulp.
