Altlas the Robot

If you spend any time on the internet, you’ve probably already seen Atlas the Robot. If you haven’t witnessed this marvel of technology, you should watch this video.

Atlas was built by Boston Dynamics, an engineering and robotics company. It can lift ten pound boxes, walk in snow, balance itself after slipping, get up after being knocked down, and some other stuff. It does, however, walk kind of slowly. I’m not sure if it has a “run” setting. You can’t help but wonder if you would be able to escape if such a robot were chasing you 🙂

I’m also not sure what Boston Dynamics is planning to do with this robot, but if they keep improving their design, it’s going to be quite the human replacement. Anyway, we just thought this was pretty cool, as long as it doesn’t decide that it wants to take over the world.

Watch and see what you think!
