According to reports, Google is selling its robot tech company Boston Dynamics, famous internet-wide for its videos of powerful horse-like robots that can run and throw things.
Toyota and Amazon are both interested, according to leaked internet company meeting memos.
A lot of possible reasons have been offered by analysts. The common thread is that Google may not want to proceed with the robotics company due to disagreements between Google decision-makers and Boston Dynamics heads. There may have been some problems with Boston Dynamics working with other Google-owned robotics companies around the world and with focusing on the projects Google wanted to pursue.
