Beware the dog!

Spot, a four-legged robot built by Waltham robotics company Boston Dynamics, has been sent to Singapore to stroll through a section of Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park and serve as an “ambassador for social distancing,” the company said in this Boston Globe article:ambassador for social distancing.


But Spot is being used for more than just monitoring social distancing.

“In Boston, Spot has been used at Brigham and Women’s Hospital to interview patients who believe they’ve been infected with the coronavirus and to monitor basic vitals. Singapore is using Spot for medical assistance, as well, having the robot bring medication to patients at the Changi Exhibition Centre community isolation facility.”
