Google Acquires Robotics-Design Company Boston Dynamics [VIDEO].

Google acquired Boston Dynamics, an engineering and roboticsdesign company, in a deal that significantly enhances the search giant’s robotics expertise.

The Friday acquisition brings a new dynamic to Google’s robotics efforts, led by Andy Rubin, which includes the company’s much-discussed self-driving cars, according to The New York Times.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the newspaper reported that Boston Dynamics will honor its existing contracts with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, the U.S. military arm that funded portions of the company’s research.

Among the standouts in Boston Dynamics’ collection of robots, the most well-known areBigDog, a four-legged robot that can travel over various types of terrain and PETMAN, a humanoid robot that tests military clothing and equipment. Both robots move with an unnerving amount of natural motion that many would expect to see in a special effects-laden film.
