In a move that adds to its ever-growing portfolio, internet search giant Google has acquired engineering and robotics design company Boston Dynamics. Known for building four-legged robot BigDog and the more humanoid PETMAN, Boston Dynamics gives Google an artificial intelligence element in addition to software and hardware. No signs of Arnold Schwarzenegger or any Terminators thus far though.
