Hyundai Is Buying Boston Dynamics for Almost $1B

If you are murdered by a robot in the near future, you can blame Cyberdyne Hyundai

If you’ve ever seen a video of an unsettlingly lifelike robot, it was probably a Boston Dynamics machine. The company just started selling its first product, the Spot quadruped robot. Owner SoftBank apparently feels this is the best time to unload the company, which it purchased from Google in 2017. Now, Hyundai Motor Company is set to acquire Boston Dynamics for $921 million.
