AT&T's new robotic dog visited Downtown Dallas and it looks like something straight out of Black Mirror
DALLAS - AT&T is the latest company to develop a robotic dog, and the new tech recently went for a stroll through Downtown Dallas.
Dallas-based AT&T teamed up with Ghost Robotics to build the robotic dog which is covered in cameras and sensors.
AT&T says the dogs can go where it is "too dangerous for humans" and can be used by the public safety community, the military and businesses.

The dog can walk over all kinds of terrain and even go underwater, according to AT&T.
They can also detect things like radiation and explosives.

This is just the latest company to develop a robotic dog.
The AT&T version is very similar to the robotic dog developed by robotics company Boston Dynamics.
The Boston Dynamics robotic dog became the inspiration for the ‘Metalhead’ episode of the dystopian series Black Mirror.
AT&T says the dog is powered by FirstNet, a communications network specifically designed to help law enforcement, healthcare and first responders.
At least 8 military bases have these dogs in operation, according to AT&T.
