Meet Atlas, The Next Generation Robot

The future of robotics is getting closer as Boston Dynamics recently showed off its latest humanoid robot, Atlas. The wireless “next generation” model  demonstrated its capabilities when Boston Dynamics released a video on YouTube, showing the Atlas bracing indoor/outdoor terrains and performing menial tasks.

While it is impressive to see how the Atlas is able to adapt to situations in the video, seeing the human subjugating the Atlas to abuse, hitting the box off its metal nubs(?) and knocking it down, you can’t help but wonder that when the robot revolution occurs, will they be so forgiving to us after watching such a video.

At least, given how much work still need to be done, we won’t be seeing a Terminator-style robot anytime soon.
