Future is here: The next gen robot, Atlas

Atlas, The Next Generation of Robots is Finally Here

Boston Dynamics, the robotics and engineering organization also owned by Google, has quite recently revealed its most amazing creation: Atlas, a two-legged robot that can walk, lift things up, and open doors like a real human. Standing 5-foot-9-inches tall and weighing 180 pounds, Atlas is a super light compared with its 330-pound ancestor, which was created for scholarly groups to use in a test hosted by DARPA a year ago. Atlas runs on batteries alone. This gives it the opportunity of development to do things like skip through a woodland, as we see it doing in the video above.
