The Boston Dynamics robots, now owned by Hyundai, marked the 40th anniversary of the Stones’ “Tattoo You” album with a music video of “Start Me Up.” It is an homage to Mick Jagger and his band, featuring a quartet of Spot robots.
Techxplore says, “the video serves to showcase not just the agility of the robots but also their precision and timing, suggesting to potential customers that perhaps the robots can do more than just lug equipment around.”
The video is of course a testament to human creativity and talent. If it convinces anyone that Spot can do much more than what we’ve already seen Spot do, then it is also a testament to human gullibility.
