A YouTuber taught Boston Dynamics' robo-dog how to pee beer into a cup

Michael Reeves made Boston Dynamics' Spot into a literal party animal.

Training your dog to pee in the house is usually not a great idea. Then again, “your dog” is usually not a $75,000 artificially intelligent robot that “pees” beer, and before you even ask — yes, that’s now a thing.


In a new video, YouTuber Michael Reeves manages to transform Boston Dynamics’ doglike robot, Spot, into a party animal capable of autonomously identifying plastic cups, accurately squatting over them, and then, well, doing its “business.”

By business, in this case, we mean, of course, dispensing beer from a modified tubing system (effectively its, ahem, dog parts) that is connected to a keg mounted on top.
