China copies Boston Dynamics robot, puts it on mass sale for $25K

No doggy-doo, vet visits or bones – now everyone can buy a robot canine online and enjoy spending time with their new four-legged friend, feeding it only with electricity. The following Chiense robot is a copy of Boston Dynamics Big Dog and Spot.

Laikago – named after Laika, a Soviet dog who was the first living creature to orbit the Earth – weighs 22kg, a bit less than a common Labrador. It’s some 60cm tall.

“It is a kind of medium automatic robot, a robot-dog in short,” Wang Xingxing the man who copied the robot told RT’s Ruptly video news agency. “We have popularized Laikago among science and technology companies, and science fans. So Laikago is a scientific toy.”

The four-legged mechanical pet is able to run on grass and can assimilate canine-like movements, just like a flesh-and-blood pooch. The initial price for Laikago will be around US$25,000, but may drop in the future.

The makers did not comment on whether RoboDog is so lifelike as to hump your leg or drink from the toilet.
