The company will sell the quadruped robot in the U.S. for $74,500, with special pricing for enterprise and academic customers. The news comes after Boston Dynamics completed its early adopter program, in which more than 150 Spot robots were programmed to perform data collection tasks in industrial settings. The company is also selling payload options like lidars, computing units, and camera modules for significant markups, giving a glimpse into the company's strategy of monetizing a technology that has historically been expensive to produce. Clients should see the move as evidence that Spot has reached a high level of commercial readiness, which is ahead of pre-commercial releases from companies like ANYbotics.
