(INTELLIHUB) — MSCHF held a one-time event inside an art museum back in February in which online enthusiasts can operate a remote-controlled war dog equipped with a paintball gun.
The event dubbed Spot’s Rampage allows users to virtually control a $75,000 robotic dog made by Boston Dynamics.
In an online first, users can “wreak havoc” during the event by operating the dog at a speed of no more than 3 miles per hour.
“Every 2 minutes, Spot’s controls will be passed to a new random person on this website,” the official website explains. “On Feb. 24th at 1 PM EST, we’re letting people remotely control a Spot robot via this website.”
During their turn, fans can fire a paintball gun that is affixed to the robot.
Questioning the event, Intellihub’s very own Shepard Ambellas Tweeted:
This is insane! Users can control a robot ‘war dog’ with a gun on it!
But will terrorists or criminals take advantage of the idea?
