Oh great, a Terminator robot walking around making sure people don't talk to each other.

Just what society needs.

This looks awful, but I bet Japanese people would be fine with robot overlords as long as they were cute

I would love to subject the selfish ignorant joggers in my local Tokyo park to something much more menacing - like Robocop. "You have 20 seconds to comply."

Getting barked at by a robot dog jobsworth. The future looks bleak indeed.

Giving it a head would be nice.

RoboRover seems to be anatomically incorrect in a few ways.

Developed by U.S. company Boston Dynamics, 

You might wanted to add since this is JapanToday, Softbank own Boston Dynamics.

WOW!!!!!COMING FROM SUCH a small island. GREAT. Even japan do not have this robot. Singapore sell to japan. Singapore, softbank is owned by koreans , maybe that is why Japanese do not have this dog because some poor minded japanese cannot accept that a global minded company invented this dog.

Reminds of that episode of Black Mirror.

Cute? A headless dog, cute?

maybe that is why Japanese do not have this dog because some poor minded japanese cannot accept that a global minded company invented this dog.

Or maybe they don't have it, because no one has it, and this is a trial of a brand new thing that no one has. Which is why no one would have it.
