Google acquired Boston Dynamics, an engineering and robotics-design company, in a deal that significantly enhances the search giant’s robotics expertise.

The Friday acquisition brings a new dynamic to Google’s robotics efforts, led by Andy Rubin, which includes the company’s much-discussed self-driving cars, according to The New York Times.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the newspaper reported that Boston Dynamics will honor its existing contracts with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, the U.S. military arm that funded portions of the company’s research.
