Alphabet may ditch Boston Dynamics and its robot dreams

Report suggests Google parent company is ending its robotics investment.

The question remains, however, that if Alphabet sells Boston Dynamics, does that mean the company is backing away from robotics all together or simply offloading this one piece.

“If they're selling Boston Dynamics, it would seem to me they're moving away from robotics, as strange as that might sound,” said Jeff Kagan, an independent industry analyst. “I would think if Google was still interested in robotics, it would hang on to Boston Dynamics and possibly make another acquisition for shorter-term realization.”
