Formant's goal is to deliver this unique experience to people from all walks of life, including people from the general public, government, education. You can be young, old, tech-savvy — or not. No prior experience necessary!Sign up — and if you get selected, you'll get to explore an area in or around San Francisco using Spot, a robotic dog, remotely. How does this work? Spot uses video cameras to relay what it sees to Formant's browser-based teleoperation "control center" — dog walkers (or "operators) use basic controls like a mouse, trackpad or game controller to navigate the robot in real-time. It's remarkably easy (and fun). When a walk is over, Formant will provide a digital record of the walk, which can be shared freely.
