Meet me a one.
This robotic dog could be yours for around $10,000
now it's true.
Most of us don't really have an extra 10 G's lying around for a robotic dog.
But, given the market for them, that's a surprisingly low price.
The other one is the newest quadruped Ed from robotics company unit tree.
You may remember unit trees last four legged robot alike ago, that debuted last year with a price tag of $45,000.
Now, unity hopes to reach a broader market with like it goes significantly cheaper younger sibling via one is really impressive to watch.
Weighing in at just 26 pounds, it has a top speed of 3.3 meters per second.
And it can carry about 11 pounds.
It looks pretty nimble.
Let's see that again.
Like any good dog a one can follow its own around the uses to depth sensing cameras to perceive its environment.
And watching it on video that seems to work pretty well.
A one can adapt to a variety of terrains like stairs, gravel, roads and ELLs, things like that.
We first got a preview of EA one back in February.
In that video we saw do a backflip, but unit three told me it can do more everyday dog tricks you know like roll over and jump.
The battery can run for up to two and a half hours per charge.
Now compare that with the latest version of like ago, which gets up to three hours can carry about 20 pounds.
And weighs in at just under 50 pounds.
That greater weight is probably why its top speed is a little lower than a one at 1.4 meters per second.
This isn't the first time we've seen a robotic quadruped.
In fact, most of you are probably thinking these really remind me of a certain mechanized mutenine spot We first met spot as we know it now back in 2017.
Created by heavy hitter Boston Dynamics gained notoriety for its ability to open doors and shake it on the dance floor.
Spot even inspired the black mirror, episode metal head.
And of course there's MIT's mini Cheetah Which mean that had spot sick, dance moves but it can do this.
And maybe one of the most significant differences with unitary robots is that you can order one right now.
Boston Dynamics does have an online form to lease a spot for what it calls an early adopter program.
But right now spot isn't really intended for consumers.
It's more meant for companies government agencies looking for things like surveillance and recon.
In fact, most recently spots been helping out at a Boston hospital as a triage for COVID patients of the one which you can actually buy right now is targeted more to the consumer.
Unit 3 told me once a customer places their order and pays, they'll have their robot in about two to three months.
And aside from just looking like a lot of fun, I could actually see myself using one of these.
If I have that kind of cash on say like a long hike or a rock climbing trip, something like that.
Let's face it at $10,000 we're not going to be seeing these under a lot of Christmas trees next holiday season.
Still, unit three is shown that the price of robotics can come down significantly for everyday consumers.
So if you had one, how do you think you'd use an AI one?
