Boston Dynamics’ Next Generation Atlas Humanoid Robot is INCREDIBLE! [Video]

I, for one, welcome our new atlas robot overlords.

Be sure to check out the sequence at around 1:21. Bullying that poor robot was just wrong. Robots have rights too, just like the synths in Fallout 4! :) #teamrailroad

A new version of Atlas, designed to operate outdoors and inside buildings. It is specialized for mobile manipulation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. It uses sensors in its body and legs to balance and LIDAR and stereo sensors in its head to avoid obstacles, assess the terrain, help with navigation and manipulate objects. This version of Atlas is about 5′ 9″ tall (about a head shorter than the DRC Atlas) and weighs 180 lbs.

Now just try to picture what thing thing will be able to accomplish in 10 years. Frightening, isn’t it?
