    In case you missed it, here's our first video with Spot. SO MANY MORE TO COME:

      If you modify the rickshaw to use Strandbeest legs you could ditch those "wheel" thingies altogether. And with an added motor to the rickshaw legs you could have "all leg drive" ;-)

      @Adam Savage’s Tested love the build, would 2 ball bearings connecting the rickshaw to spot's hitch structure ease backward and forward momentum? Giving a little more give on back and forth motion but maybe limiting radial rotation of the ball bearing to 70 ish degrees. I can even imagine a way to get them spring loaded to reduce impact stress... so manh possibilities 🤪

    A 21st Century autonomous dog pulling a 20th century man in a 19th century rickshaw. To achieve this vision before now one would have to drop a hit of 4 way blotter acid.

    Those Boston Dynamics robots are pretty scary. I don't believe for a second that they haven't experimented with weapons and teaching them to fight.

    A mention to the bell that Adam had on the rickshaw, without the software assistance it was a lot more jerky by the sound of the bell then you barely heard it after. Nice touch and good project.

    You can complete the visual experience by adding a whip :-) I think it was deplorable - what your fat ass did to spot in the end.
