Do you remember the Boston Dynamics robots videos of just a few years ago? It was a big deal that robots like Atlas could walk on (gasp!) uneven ground. But Atlas keeps blowing through milestones left and right, like in this new video that shows Atlas effortlessly jumping over obstacles and hopping onto boxes like it’s a parkour legend. The robot uprising is on the horizon, folks. This is not a drill.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that Atlas has gone from subhuman to superhuman in just a few short years. As recently as January of 2016, it was a big deal that robots like Atlas could walk untethered along hills. Now we’re seeing robots like Atlas doing backflips. I can’t even do a backflip! Back in 2015, Atlas still needed a tether to properly run through the woods.
