Toyota is closing in on a deal to buy Google’s robotics company Boston Dynamics, and the ‘ink is nearly dry’

One misstep after another for Boston Dynamics. First they get bought by the bunglers at Google, who dont want to do business with the Pentagon, so they buy a company who almost exclusively works for the Pentagon, and now getting sold to a foreign electronics company.
Pretty sad treatment for the company making some of the best robotics in the world. It should be sold to a US defense contractor.
Google is selling off robotics company Boston Dynamics, and Toyota is a serious contender.
