Google’s parent company , Alphabet, will sell Boston Dynamics


Google executives were uncomfortable with the company’s exposure to negative public opinion surrounding robots and the indication that the company was developing products that would take jobs away from human beings. More, Executives at Google have plans to generate real revenue and concluded that Boston Dynamics isn’t likely to produce a marketable product in the next few years

The sale doesn’t mean Google is getting out of the robotics game completely. They also bought in the past couple of years: Industrial Perception, Bot & Dolly, Autofuss, Meka, Redwood Robotics, Schaft, and Holomni. Google director of robotics Aaron Edsinger said that working with Boston Dynamics was “a bit of a brick wall.”
