Boston Dynamics is an American robotics designing company. It is known for being one of the leading engineering companies which produce extraordinary robots which are capable of doing several tasks. But recently, a video went viral which completely changed the image of a robot in people’s minds.
The fake video was viewed more than 13 million times on social media
This fake video was shared by an account named @kocizum on Twitter. This video shows Boston Dynamics-like robot which was given a series of tasks. It was then hit with a hockey stick, a chair, a beer can, and even being shot with a pistol. Finally, at some point, the robot loses patience and retaliates. It disables the humans with karate moves and points a gun at them.
The reality behind the video
This parody video was shot playfully by Corridor Digital team and called Bosstown Dynamics. It was shot using motion capture and green screen technology. The rumours were later cleared by Corridor Digital team by sharing the link to the original video. This original video shows the complete use of CGI technology in the framing of the fake video.
