The Rise and Fall of the Machines

The engineers at Boston Dynamics have done it again, and this time with a video that will make you feel sorry for the robots.

The new Atlas humanoid robot is “designed to operate outdoors and inside buildings,” Boston Dynamics wrote in a description of the video posted on YouTube. Weighing in at 180 pounds (82 kg) and standing 5’9″ (1.75 m) tall, it’s a slimmer version of its 6 foot, 330 pound (1.83 m, 150 kg) predecessor. It uses Lidar and stereoscopic sound to avoid obstacles, navigate, and pick up boxes. And better yet, it’s battery powered.
