The Unitree Go2 is Now Open for Pre-Orders


If you’re looking for a more advanced yet affordable robot dog companion, then you may want to check out the Unitree Go2. The Chinese tech company, Unitree, has created their second-gen robot dog, Go2, after the remarkable success of Go1.

With new upgrades such as 30% more torque, new impressive tricks, and exceptional balance, the Go2 is a robot dog that any owner will be glad to have as an animatronic companion.

The Unitree Go2 is Now Open for Pre-Orders

For a mobile and agile robot, the Go2 is as compact as can be. It stands 40 cm or 16 inches tall and weighs 15 kg or 33 pounds. Although it is made out of aluminum, the Go2 still boasts a sturdy design and uses high-strength plastic chassis material so it can carry more than half of its load.

Along with a durable design, the Go2 is highly athletic. It has more torque than its predecessor, Go1, and can perform jumps, do backflips, and bust a move on its two crossed-over legs. Perhaps YouTuber Zac Alsop may have won the dog show he entered before with his Go1 had he waited for the Go2 instead.

One of the more impressive features of the Go2 is its speech capabilities. This robot dog has incorporated a GPT-enabled speech engine allowing it to engage in natural language conversation with humans. Not only does this feature make it easier for owners to carry out voice commands but it also allows the Go2 to write code itself so it can interpret the owner’s intentions to be of further help. Truly, a remarkable outbreak when it comes to human-robot interaction!

The Go2 can also be an extra layer of security and protection to its owners as this robot dog is equipped with advanced sensors such as super wide-angle LiDAR and HD cameras. These sensors and tech allow the Go2 to map and navigate its surroundings, go on walks or jogs alongside its owner, and avoid obstacles.

With such features and capabilities, one might think that the Go2 robot dog will cost a fortune. However, Unitree has managed to keep it to an affordable starting price of $1,600 for the base model and $2,800 for the pro model. Currently, the Go2 is only open for pre-orders.

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.
