Our New Robot Overlords Are Getting Better: Atlas Goes for a Walk

Boston Dynamics has made some major improvements to their latest Atlas model, which now carries its own battery and doesn’t need to be tethered.  It can pick objects up, it can find objects after some jerk human knocks them away with a hockey stick, it can catch its balance when shoved, it can open doors, and perhaps most remarkably, it can get up on its own after doing a faceplant.

This thing is pretty cool.  😉
