Lets hope these robots don’t suddenly multiply and attempt to take over the world, because I’m not sure we’d stand a chance!
In the lasted videos released by the Boston Dynamics’ team, we see that their robot creations are now able to run, jump and even climb.
The groups robots generated viral attention a few months back after a video of their upright robot (Atlas) was seen opening doors and walking through with ease. Their robot has also done back flips!
In the video below, Atlas is seen running effortlessly through a field and even jumps over a log with ease. The robot is entirely on its own after the operator hits the GO button! All the movements, decisions and actions performed by the robot are entirely done by the robot ‘itself’.
In this video, SpotMini climbs stairs like a boss!
The videos, which have racked up a combined 1 million views, are the latest to show off these robots, who have terrified plenty of people. One of them is tech exec Elon Musk, who has repeatedly warned about the perils of artificial intelligence.
This is nothing. In a few years, that bot will move so fast you’ll need a strobe light to see it. Sweet dreams… https://t.co/0MYNixQXMw
