The other video shows the doglike SpotMini robot taking a six-minute jog through a real-world office and lab facility (condensed into a three-minute clip).

The school in California shooting occurred
The boy injured was also 14, and police stated that he was taken to the hospital after being shot in the arm . It is unknown why or when the student was pulled from the school or if he had previous issues with officials.

The video had been viewed more than 500,000 times as of Friday morning.

One idea involves a legged device that could carry people in wheelchairs onto more hard terrain. "We're not actively working on that yet".
