Boston Dynamics’ SpotMini

SpotMini is a new smaller version of the Spot robot, weighing 55 lbs dripping wet (65 lbs if you include its arm.) SpotMini is all-electric (no hydraulics) and runs for about 90 minutes on a charge, depending on what it is doing. SpotMini is one of the quietest robots we have ever built. It has a variety of sensors, including depth cameras, a solid state gyro (IMU) and proprioception sensors in the limbs. These sensors help with navigation and mobile manipulation. SpotMini performs some tasks autonomously, but often uses a human for high-level guidance.

VelociRaptor mast

Will-Burt introduces the VelociRaptor. Ground-breaking portable telescopic mast technology which enables accurate elevated line-of-sight fire by remote weapons on-the-halt along with elevated surveillance and targeting on-the-move.

Video is 4 years old. It would appear that this technology never got far with the US armed forces.
