The robot overlords take over and they are sharpening parkour skills. Hell, these things are a lot more agile and organized than the T-800s in James Cameron’s Terminator, and I’m sure that they’re going to get even better with time and practice!
Check out the video of Boston Dynamics’ Atlas robot in action.
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.
