When Xiaomi promises a three-hour presentation, you can imagine anything, but what has caught us entirely by surprise has been the CyberDog.
From the hand of its CEO, the manufacturer has shown us an autonomous robot with four legs in the purest style of Spot from Boston Dynamics, although without the accessory arm and limiting itself to the four legs that a real dog would have.
The unexpected product has already been announced with a sale price for China, so it is not a prototype as it might have seemed. CyberDog has come on stage after seeing the Xiaomi MIX 4, the Mi Pad 5 and 5 Pro, the Xiaomi Sound, and new OLED televisions, and as a culmination, it has said goodbye with what some of us feared: a pirouette.
A robot that follows us up to 11.5 kilometers / hour
CyberDog can “hear” us with its six built-in microphones. The presentation showed how Lei Jun issued orders, and the robot attended, performing movements such as sitting, standing up, following him, or lying on his back.
