"The SpotMini robot ... is one that was motivated by thinking about something that could go in an office-in a more accessible place for business applications".
At a robotics conference in California, the company's founder Marc Raibert announced that the slightly creepy SpotMini was now in pre-production and scheduled for large-scale production and general availability from middle of 2019.
