Japanese company acquires Boston Dynamics

Recommended Posts

The Google-owned robotics firm has been purchased by Japanese technology conglomerate Softbank.

Boston Dynamics has become something of a household name in the robotics industry over the last few years thanks to its impressive line-up of eerily life-like creations.


Here is a video of the latest in the line of what they are creating....

Leave it to the Japanese to buy up anything technology orientated. But a part of me thinks this kind of thing should have been kept away from them and kept close to the nations people. Especially due to the things it could produce. I would also be interested in seeing how this affects military deals with the U.S. As I do believe they had them work on some stuff in the past?

So Google bought BD back in 2013 - fleeced all its talent and technology and sold the now empty shell to the Japanese.

No wonder the "don't be evil" company is so successful.
