SpotMini: All-Electric, Agile Robot Dog Does the Dishes

SpotMini is a smaller version of Boston Dynamics' Spot robot. The all-electric robot (no hydraulics) is very quiet and has a variety of sensors, including depth cameras, a solid state gyro, and proprioception sensors in the limbs. These sensors help with navigation and mobile manipulation - for tasks like doing the dishes. SpotMini performs some tasks autonomously, but often uses a human for high-level guidance.
