Impressive parkour for the Boston Dynamics Atlas robot (video)

A prophecy foretold by many science fiction films, robot world domination continues to slowly brew.

After dancing with his colleagues, the humanoid robot Atlas signed by the Boston Dynamics company is moving up a gear and can now move gracefully on an urban-type course, sliding in passing a few mastered acrobatics. Supporting video (below).

Robot Boston Dynamics Atlas, faultless parkour


According to Boston Dynamics, such a chain of obstacles - or parkour - is the perfect proving ground for testing new moves for Atlas. As you can see, the robot exhibits unparalleled balance through a variety of dynamic and changing actions. Perfect warm-up before chasing the humans to capture them, or catch up with them when they try to escape.
