People often come up with creative uses of  technology. As proof, YouTuber Michael Reeves discovered that the robot dog Spot, from the Boston Dynamics company, could be programmed to urinate beer when ordered.

On his YouTube channel, Reeves shared a video where he shows how he turns the four-legged robot Spot into the best partying partner.

With a quick code, the YouTuber managed to get Spot to identify a glass placed on the floor, position himself on it and shoot jets of beer into the glass.

Reeves clarifies in the video that the robot's latest skill still needs work. “The 'piss bot' is working perfectly, 35 percent of the time,” he says in the clip. Still, it is an amazing and entertaining feature.

Boston Dynamics has worked hard to improve the public image of its machines. Since Spot became commercially available, it has been used in ways that the company does not necessarily approve of. For example, someone reportedly equipped the robot with a paintball gun.

Last week, the French army also used Spot in simulated military combat exercises. Boston Dynamics told The Verge that it did not know that these particular tests were being carried out, although it did know that the French military had access to its machines.

One Spot robot costs about $74,500.
