In the Tweet, a sunglasses-clad Bezos casually strolls along with a yellow and grey SpotMini, Boston Dynamics' new 25 kg four-legged autonomous robot.
But not all social media users were impressed, many reminding him that Netflix series Black Mirror had already predicted it.
Episode 5 of the series' fourth season features humans facing off against terrifying robotic dogs, clearly inspired by Boston Dynamics' creations. Users recalled the episode in their response to Bezos.
i like how black mirror literally showed those robot dogs being murderous predators but jeff bezos thought it was cool so now he has one— tim (@hey_timm) March 20, 2018
Others challenged the CEO to a dog cuteness competition, offered to sell him a robotic "pet bird," or photoshopped his head on the robot's body and vice-versa.

SpotMini had earlier creeped out YouTube users, Boston Dynamics released a video of the robot attempting to open a door amid human resistance.
