Atlas | Partners in Parkour

Atlas | Partners in Parkour

Parkour is the perfect sandbox for the Atlas team at Boston Dynamics to experiment with new behaviors. In this video our humanoid robots demonstrate their whole-body athletics, maintaining its balance through a variety of rapidly changing, high-energy activities. Through jumps, balance beams, and vaults, we demonstrate how we push Atlas to its limits to discover the next generation of mobility, perception, and athletic intelligence.

How does Atlas do parkour? Go behind the scenes in the lab:

      @Hans Servando The early prototypes had hands, but they started stealing stuff everywhere so they removed the hands.

      @Rajan Tyagi well, now it is… It’s still based in Boston though. Do you consider your vegetables to be made in America even though they’re owned by a Chinese company?

      @SoCalFreelance it doesn’t. What you’ll see is the current jobs disappear and new jobs that are engineered for the robots take their place. Robots and people can’t do the same things. People are adaptable and creative, robots not so much. Maybe one day, but not anytime soon.

    Favorite moment: 0:38 when it almost loses its balance but adjusts its foot and catches itself with no fuss

    When it used its arm to jump over, I was terribly impressed!

    I hope John Connor is doing ok. We’ll need him soon it seems.

    It’s actually starting to enter that “uncanny valley” phase. I’m amazed and equally terrified.

    • TheWriteGuy 91 says:

      I’d say they’re actually starting to climb up the other side. All they need is to cover that in a lifelike body and it will be really close.

    I love that their fans start going crazy 😂
