This Boston Dynamics Robot Stands Up To Human Torment

The company's newest Atlas robot has great balance and can even pick itself up when it falls.
This Boston Dynamics Robot Stands Up To Human Torment

Boston Dynamics has showed off the newest iteration of its bi-pedal Atlas robot.

A video shows it picking up boxes and tracking those boxes as they are moved around.

It's much sleeker than the last version. Older models had to be plugged into an external power source, unlike the newest one.

It also appears to be pretty good at keeping its balance on uneven surfaces and after being pushed.

That's a big deal considering balance is a well-documented problem with a lot of modern robots.

And when the Atlas does fall, it can pick itself back up. Let's just hope it doesn't seek revenge on the humans pushing it around.
