Hyundai now owns robot dog maker Boston Dynamics

More recently, Boston has come under fire for allowing Spot to be utilized by law enforcement and the military. Though there was no sign of those use cases in Hyundai’s new promo video. Instead, the clip depicts the robot canine as a guide dog for the blind and as a helper inside a hospital.
