Hamburg (dpa / lno) - A robot that reminds of a dog caused astonishment on Thursday in downtown Hamburg.

The Berlin security service provider Ciborius presented a new technology for guard protection that is to be used throughout Germany.

The four-legged robot Spot from Boston Dynamics can secure buildings without tiring, as the company explained.

He has an all-round camera and is programmed in such a way that he can do his rounds on his own.

If he finds any inconsistencies, report them.
