The sassy artists at MSCHF have rigged up a robot dog to blast famous artworks with a paint gun for their installation “Spot’s Rampage.” Manufacturer Boston Dynamics is not pleased.
Visitors to spotsrampage.com can control Spot and blast various things in the room by controlling spot with their phones. Items that can be blasted include a suitcase of money, fancy Nikes, and replicas of notable art by Banksy and Andy Warhol, among others.
