We are already afraid for humanity: the robot from Boston Dynamics and its dashing parkour


Remember we once talked about robots from Boston Dynamics? Even then they frightened us with their anthropomorphism and amazing technical characteristics. But now they really began to exceed the capabilities of man, and it is both admirable and alarming.

Yesterday, the guys from Boston Dynamics published a new video in which one of their favorite robots Atlas is engaged in parkour and does it with ease athlete.

Apparently, the rise of the machines is very close!

And it would not be an exaggeration if we say that for some few years Atlas has turned from a subhuman into a superhuman. For example, back in the recent 2016, it was interesting to observe how the robot could walk on its own on the hills, without losing balance. However, today he is doing a back flip. And after all not each of us can brag of that is able to do a somersault in General.

Naturally, robots like Atlas are far from perfect and can, for example, fall off the stage, as happened a year ago at one of the public presentations of his abilities. But to fall from the stage and the people, so it is not necessary so strongly to be surprised.

We, in turn, will continue to monitor the development of robots and hope that when the machines reach their peak, they will not enslave us.
