This Is a Lovely Video of Two Dogs Playing, Even If One Is an Enormous and Terrifying Robot

Happy Tuesday.

If you weren’t immediately bowled over by Atlas, Boston Dynamics’ humanoid battle robot funded by the military, you might love Spot, Boston Dynamics’ dog battle robot funded by the military. See Spot play. See Spot roll over. See Spot gain sentience and take out the little real dog trying to warn the humans about the dangers of creating robot dogs. As venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson, who posted the video to YouTube, notes, all the other models of Spot are owned by the Department of Defense.
