Replicating Boston Dynamic Spot with a Raspberry Pi

Spot Micro, the quadruped with the soul of Raspberry Pi

Spot, the quadruped from Boston Dynamic, is possibly one of the most desired devices for any robotics lover. A proposal that from that first version, clumsy and rough, has evolved in a surprising way. You only need to see some of the latest videos to realize that it is a whole engineering work with a lot of potential.

Its creators claim that use it for reconnaissance tasks in dangerous or difficult-to-access terrain it is one of the many uses that can be given to it. And that can mark a before and after for many professionals who would not have to expose their lives so much. Although, as we say, the uses are multiple and that is what also generates some fear for other users.

There are those who fear that a day will come when artificial intelligences will reveal themselves and all that army of robots will turn against us. Yes, as the Matrix proposed, the Wackoski sisters trilogy and that by the way will have a fourth installment.

But back to the topic, Spot is a unique device and recently the company announced that it was now available for purchase. Of course, it is not something that is available to everyone. The sale price of Spot is $ 75,000. So, given the impossibility of getting one, there were those who thought, why not create my own Spot? Well said and done, this is Spot Micro.

How to create your Spot Micro

What do you think of Spot Micro? Surely you think the same as us, it is amazing. Well, the best of all is that if you have a little skill and some knowledge of programming and robotics you can build your own Spot. Because the only thing you’ll need is one Raspberry Pi, which will act as a central control system; a 3D printer to create the different parts of its casing and then a series of plates, sips and additional elements with which to achieve the whole theme of joints, etc.

Ok, it is not an economical project such as setting up your own arcade, but it is certainly much cheaper than buying a real Spot. Also you will not have to complicate yourself by the software issue. Everything you need for its programming and control Through a laptop you have it on the GitHub website of the user mike4192.

So, if you are able to create your own version, we encourage you to do so. Surely your friends when they get home and see it are going to hallucinate. And it is so similar to the real one that you can even move it at two different speeds: walking and jogging.
