Boston Dynamics’ robot dog is chipping in to help COVID-19 patients

Boston Dynamics’ dog-like quadruped robot is helping since last week for remote triage of patients suspected of having COVID-19 at Brigham And Women’s Hospital. The company now has plans to expand use of its robots to assist healthcare workers during the pandemic, and it’s also open sourcing the hardware and software it’s using so other hospitals and robot makers may be able to do follow its lead.

I want the iPad to be on the end of an arm so it looks like a creepy neck.

Smartphone is just a distraction while it scans your vital stats to calculate who’s not going to make it. Fail that and it’s real mission executes...

Not what I was expecting out of Boston Dynamics. This is very interesting. If this has a good response in the field, it could be applied in other instances too. You too can have a robo-dogo.

Glad to see Boston dynamics doesn't just develop robots to get their rocks off on torturing them
