Boston Dynamics’ Atlas Robot Goes Jogging

While Google might have sold robotics company Boston Dynamics to Softbank, the company is still making amazing strides in the field. The same can also be said about Atlast, their most famous humanoid robot.

In November, we wrote that Atlas could soon be a parkour sensation, we definitely didn’t expect him to be able to jump obstacles so soon! In the video above, you can see Atlas jogging and even jumping over a fallen log. You’ll see an impressive demonstration of the bipedal robot’s coordination.

Atlas is just 1.5m tall and is pretty lightweight, too. Due to the use of 3D printed components, this humanoid robot weighs just 75 kg.

It might not be long before we see robots tested in longer runs. Maybe we’ll even see one in the Boston Marathon next year.
