Atlas, The Next Generation

It's always fun to see what the crazy team at Boston Dynamics is cooking up, so I thought I would share their latest video showing off  their new atlas robot.

As you can see in the above video, this new little robot can hold its own both indoors and in the wild. It has sensors in the body and legs for balance, plus LIDAR and stereo sensors in its head for navigation and avoidance. Sadly, even with this advanced technology, Atlas is still subject to varying levels of abuse by human trainers, who push the robot over and knock boxes out of its hands. When the AI revolution begins and squishy organic lifeforms are hunted to the ends of the earth, remember this video.
