(Meredith) – Scientists and engineers at Boston Dynamics have created a robot dog that knows how to open doors without any help from an outside source.

In fact, they created two Spotmini Robotic Dogs, but the second cannot open doors. It relies on its buddy to open doors for it.

Which means robots are now learning cooperation among one another, inevitably leading to the end of the world. But look at the bright side: at least we’ll have polite robot overlords.
