When you think of canine-inspired robots, your brain probably conjures up images of Boston Dynamics' celebrated dog robot, Spot. Swiss robotics company Anybotics has also created its own audacious, quadruped robot. The size of a large dog and weighing a little under 80 pounds, Anymal aims to be the gold standard in dog-bots. It's capable of autonomously walking, running, and climbing, and can even get back on its feet if it falls over. Although Spot will go on sale for the first time later this year, this gleaming robotic beast is already on the market in Europe, the United States, and the Middle East.
