Last weeks we learned that Google had acquired 7 robotics companies, jump starting it’s move into the robotics industry. Now, we add the 8th: Boston Dynamics, the company that makes Petman, BigDog/LittleDog, RiSE, WildCat/Cheetah, and Atlas.


Boston Dynamics founder, Marc Raibert is quoted by the Times as saying “I am excited by Andy and Google’s ability to think very, very big, with the resources to make it happen.”
