Atlas The Robot Is Now Battery Powered and More
Gareth Andrews / 3 years ago
Boston Dynamics is a company that keeps pushing us further and further in the field of robotics. From Spot the Dog to giant canine like robots designed for military purposes (except for their noise apparently). The latest from Boston Dynamic though is something a little more human.
Atlas is Boston Dynamics humanoid robotics model, with two legs, two hands and all the abilities that could soon make it take our jobs. Atlas not only operates off battery power, an issue which has long left large robots plugged into the wall like a phone charger, but it also has the ability to self-balance. Demonstrated in the video, if you try to push over Atlas it rebalances itself to avoid falling over. Just in case, Atlas can also pick itself up off of the ground, for those unfortunate accidents.
Atlas isn’t just restricted to the office or warehouse, with the ability to open push doors (not so sure pull doors would work as well) and with the help from the balancing systems, can even go for those long walks in the woods with you.
We warn you, if the robots ever do rise up against their human overlords, chances are this video will be used as evidence of our abuse against robots.
