WATCH: Pack of dog-like robots pull large truck


(CNN) — If we’re ever replaced by robots, those robots probably have been created by Boston Dynamics.

This video explains why: It shows 10 of the company’s spot-mini robots pulling a large truck. The four-legged robots already possess an array of skills, like opening doors, picking up objects and climbing stairs. 

Boston Dynamics says the spot-mini will be available soon for a variety of applications, but the price has been made public and they may not be available for purchase by the average consumer. 

The spot-mini runs entirely on electric power — up to an hour-and-a-half on a single charge. It has a maximum payload of about 30 pounds, or half its own weight.
