Boston Dynamics has made a name for themselves in recent years by building incredibly agile machines designed to make money worth, running, jumping, flipping and even performing stylish dance moves.
In this way, the number of questions about Boston Dynamics, which has increased its popularity considerably, has increased. One of the most curious questions, of course, is how the design workshop of such interesting robots is.
Boston Dynamics isn’t afraid to make mistakes
The tech company, which is rare to open its doors to anyone but employees, gave CBS’ 60 Minutes team exclusive access to the Massachusetts workshop to answer the question asked “for years.”
The video on the 60 Minutes website shows Anderson Cooper touring the workshop and meeting some of the staff, including Boston Dynamics founder and president Marc Raibert. Also in the video, Raibert says about the company;
“Anyone who follows the trials and problems of Boston Dynamics robots such as Spot, Atlas and Handle will know not only when things are going right, but when they are going wrong. Failure is a big part of the development process at Boston Dynamics.”
In addition to this speech, Raibert explained his team’s slogan as follows: “Do it, break it, fix it.” The founder also mentioned an extraordinary video in which his team recently assembled several of its advanced robots for a dance session that showcased impressive movement and balance abilities similar to humans and animals. Raibert says the project took eight months to work and run.
