Just when you thought the World could not get any stranger, they decided to let those friendly looking robot dogs from Boston Dynamics out.
Far from barking its orders, a robot dog enlisted by Singapore authorities to help curb coronavirus infections in the city-state politely asks joggers and cyclists to stay apart.
The remote-controlled, four-legged machine built by Boston Dynamics was first deployed in a central park on Friday as part of a two-week trial that could see it join other robots policing Singapore’s green spaces during a nationwide lockdown.
The authorities behind the latest trial – the government technology and cyber security agencies – said in a statement that Spot could better cross rough terrain in parks and gardens.
As well as broadcasting messages reminding visitors of social distancing measures, Spot is fitted with cameras and analytics tools to estimate the number of people in the park. 
These robot dogs are just one of many in a whole family of robots from the US Government funded Boston Dynamics. Their technology has been coming on leaps and bounds (quite literally) over the past decade with power sources only really being the major hurdle at this point.
And just for fun, or maybe terror, does anyone remember this episode of Black Mirror?
