CyberDog is a new ominous-looking robot from Xiaomi

Summary

 

Chinese tech giant Xiaomi has unveiled a quadrupedal robot named CyberDog: an experimental, open-source machine that the firm says “holds unforetold possibilities.”

The release of CyberDog by Xiaomi is very interesting, though not necessarily as a product in its own right. Instead, it says a lot about the current robotics landscape and the accessibility of this tech.

Quote

The same press release highlights CyberDog’s “pet-like nature,” including its ability to respond to voice commands and follow its owner like a real dog.

Quote

CyberDog is capable of following its owner and darting around obstructions,” says Xiaomi. The machine can also respond to voice commands, including recognizing wake words and instructions, or it can be controlled using a connected smartphone app.

 

My thoughts

Hmm... this robot looks a lot like Spot from Boston Dynamics... like really similar. Or am I dreaming?

I couldn't help but think of a Dog from HL2 while reading the article. 

It sure its cool but not practical in any way. Still... it would be fun going on street with it and see peoples reactions.

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Just because it looks very similar to the Boston Dynamics robot it doesn't mean its built the same. 

We don't even know how well its built, if it's waterproof, etc... 

 

But if its truly fully open source then it may be good enough even if its just a copy.

I've played too much Horizon: Zero Dawn to see how this one ends..

May we all end up in the same tribe.

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

I first thought this is just gonna be a render / concept / hype thing (like that Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha Pro).
But I gotta say these real life demos are looking fine:

I have always wondered what the point of something like this is. I mean when I think of robots I think of things that will do something useful and not a cheap imitation of a dog. I would think something like this would be cool to look at and interact with for a couple of hours bit after that I would like get sick of it.

its meant to enter areas too dangerous for humans and too unstable for drones.

okay, I don't think this is practical AT ALL.

why companies do this kind of thing???

 

copy open source solutions online and skin it so that the locals can be hyped??? 

 

I'm from China btw, but still. I think it is silly...

If it is not broken, let's fix till it is.

Yes, good

 

But does it piss beer?

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I dunno... think of the years of R&D Boston Dynamics spent developing spot and then all of a sudden... poof! Xiaomi is a robotics expert out of nowhere.

Thats the government model for protection against those damn imperialists of Tibet. Didn't they already launch a drone bird army for surveillance? "You sir are insane. You claim you were followed by 100 doves and attacked by 10 dogs after you said Taiwan is a country" :D

easy money

if you want to make money don't risk with new stuff, just copy others

 

besides most of the market it's like that, considering china and without considering china

 

all the same crap with slightly differences becomes new products

What did you expect out of 1,500$ robot? 
You want the real deal, get Spot for 75,000$.
