Atlas goes for a run..

So, after having to suffer another mind-numbing, spirit-crushing pre-roll advert, I dived into the very latest Boston Dynamics footage. It is, as is becoming the norm now, another scarily good and astonishing bit of natural-looking robotics.

This is Atlas. He might look big, but he weighs less than me (he’s just 75Kg) and is just 1.5 metres tall. He (yes, I’m calling it a “he”) also uses LiDAR and stereo vision with hydraulic actuation and 28 joints giving him the flexibility to jump off stuff and do a bit of running….

More to come no doubt. Perhaps we’ll see him doing the London Marathon next year?
