Spot the Robot Dog Dances on the Red Carpet for the ‘Transformers’ Premiere


Spot the Robot Dog of Boston Dynamics is no stranger to the spotlight. From walking down a fashion runway to painting works of art, Spot the Robot Dog can now add dancing on the red carpet to its list of feats that not a lot can say they can ever do in their lifetime.

Paramount Pictures held a Red Carpet Premiere event for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts last June 5 where Spot the Robot Dog was invited to show off its dance moves. It did a series of moves such as stretching or swaying its head from side to side, head bops, and struts in place. Such attraction from a robot dog truly left people in awe, and it was definitely most fitting considering how the Transformers movie franchise is about robots.

This is not the first time Spot the Robot Dog dabbled into the world of Hollywood or film and television. As Black Mirror creator, Charlie Brooker, has previously mentioned before that their episode ‘Metalhead’ is actually inspired by the very same robot dog of Boston Dynamics.

Needless to say, Spot can do more than contribute to the world of arts and pop culture. This robot dog has also been helping the military and possibly the LAPD in completing missions and keeping people safe.

Linda Takahashi

American-born New Yorker Linda Johnson has been fascinated with robotic machines since she was a teenager, when her father, a surgeon, would introduce to her the machines that he used to perform keyhole surgeries. This interest led her to pursue a tech degree at the University of Washington, where she met Sota Takahashi. They married and now have two children. Linda’s father developed dementia later on and was given a robot pet as a companion. She saw how much having a robot pet friend helped her father, which is what led her to create this website and advocate to spread word about robot pets and how they can help both children and the elderly.
