Latest Boston Dynamics Video Proves The Robot Uprising Will Be Shockingly Nimble

This time around, Boston Dynamics has given us a brief glimpse at the latest iteration of the Atlas, and it's simply unbelievable.

Though the robot isn't quite at the level of human activities, Boston Dynamics has made great strides over the last couple years. But thanks to advancements in software and processing power, the robot can now use its legs, arms, and torso to drive its jumps and for balancing.

According to the Boston Dynamics website, "Atlas is the latest in a line of advanced humanoid robots we are developing. Atlas uses computer vision to locate itself with respect to visible markers on the approach to hit the terrain accurately". Atlas has its performance improved a lot since its debut where its ability to march through the woods was shown.

Donald Kohn, who served for eight years on the Fed board, said he thought Trump's criticism would have no effect on Fed policy. And while he acknowledged higher rates helped savers, he criticized the Federal Reserve's tactics as 'too aggressive'.

Atlas is here, and after a somewhat rocky start, the robot is as capable of parkour as a Sylvester Stallone circa the mid-1970s. We can have our best, our strongest, and our fastest square off against robots like Atlas.

It can also self-correct its balance if it gets pushed or knocked to avoid falling over.

It's been a while since we've talked about Boston Dynamics here at HotHardware.
