Adam Savage Builds a Custom Rickshaw Carriage So His Boston Robotics Spot Robot Can Give Him Rides

Adam Savage Spot Rickshaw

For for Christmas 2019, Adam Savage (previously) of Tested received his very own Boston Robotics Spot Robot (previously). Upon receipt of the quadroped robot, Savage wasted no time in taking his Spot for a test run. Now that he’s got Spot all warmed up, Savage attached a custom made rickshaw carriage to ride in while Spot pulls the load.

Adam’s first project with Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot gives it a novel purpose: pulling a custom-built carriage with Adam as its passenger! Watch Adam give Spot some Victorian flair and the interesting problems that arise in marrying cutting-edge robot technology with vintage transport.
