Puma Introduces ‘Raceable Tech’ With the BeatBot Pacing Robot

A training tool of the future?

Introducing the BeatBot, a self-driving robot that can serve as a pacer—or a challenger—during workouts.

As you can see in the video above, Puma’s innovative robot can follow a line (like on a track) at the pace you can control. Think a mechanical rabbit for humans.

According to a Fast Company article, the BeatBot is only available to Puma-sponsored athletes and teams for now. But it could be a glimpse at a training tool of the future.
