Boston Dynamics’ SPOT Robot Dog Is Guarding Italy’s Pompeii Ruins

A four-legged contraption is now patrolling the ancient city of Pompeii. SPOT is the invention of U.S.-based robotics firm Boston Dynamics. The robodog struts through the ruins of Pompeii, keeping an eye out for trespassers. It’s also gathering data on the structural integrity of the site. Pompeii and its sister city, Herculaneum, were destroyed in 79 CE – nearly 2,000 years ago – by a cataclysmic eruption of nearby Mount Vesuvius.
