The Boston Dynamics Robot Atlas Is Now a Parkour Master | Virtual Reality
Running With Style
They grow up so fast.
And now Boston Dynamics has upped the ante again, by showing off Atlas’s ability to parkour its way across a makeshift obstacle course.
In a short video released on Thursday, Atlas leaps over a log before scaling a tri-level platform. Not exactly enough to qualify for the World Parkour Championships, but definitely more than most bots (and more than a few humans) could accomplish on two legs.
See Atlas parkour across the course in the clip below, and start taking bets now on the next skill Boston Dynamics’s bot will show off. Our money’s on slacklining, because why the heck not?
