I want to know how the stroller can "follow" two feet in front and know where she's going to turn or go straight. I smell a fake video and a product still in development.

I think this is better suited for rough terrain.
Wouldn't rather have one of these ?

Not sure why, but those Boston Dynamics robots really creep me out.

Me too! As far as the stroller goes, I have the same question posed by mdarnton: how does where to turn when it is not following someone?

I would rather have one of these:

Between the stroller being self-propelled, heated, and having many other electronic doodads what could go wrong? Ok maybe for a camera, but I don't think I'll be putting a child in one.

And YES!!! the Boston Dynamis robots are creepy and scary

Looks like you're right about that. Its production timeline is on its website and it's now in the "alpha prototype design review" stage. Shipping the self propelled version isn't expected to happen until Ap., 2017. And its price tag is around $20,000.00!

Because it looks like it will turn on you one day.

Especially if they keep kicking it all the time!

Good point

Hacked drones attack owners.

AI rises and attacks stupid (all) humans.

Battery fires. Chicago today seized a warehouse full of Hoverboards which are not UL approved and are part of the 'Killer Hoverboard' sneak attack.

Beware of batteries.

Creepy or not, this would be a great way to extend the "...100 feet from the car" rule

Had the same thought the first time i saw someone go by me in Boston on one of those hoverboard things but never looked into it. Found out later they have the bad habit of exploding, Glad I don't have to explain to my wife how my Wisner caught on fire.

Creepy or not hypothetically if you're trudging thru the woods to get a shot my choice
would be BD's Spot. All terrain compared to a stroller.

And to those that believe Spot or any other ambulatory device would attack one day,
just remember Skynet (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skynet_(Terminator)) must become self aware before that can happen.
:p

Maybe if you had a platform like Ansel had on his car or a saddle it might work.

Self-aware or not, if you keep kicking them like that big guy did at some point they're going to want to kick back!!
