Video: A morning jog with Boston Dynamics’ 3D printing powered Atlas robot


Clever? Creepy? Or perhaps a healthy dose of both? American robotics company Boston Dynamics has just released a video demonstrating the latest abilities of its Atlas humanoid robot. In the clip, Atlas can be seen jogging, up an incline and on uneven ground, and jumping over a log, all for the purpose search and rescue.

Just days after posting, Atlas is already trending on YouTube, having accrued almost 6 million views. It has also been receiving mixed reviews, some concerned about its applications in defense, others remarking on just how lifelike it is.

Despite the feeling for this extremely realistic robot, Atlas is undeniably a feat of modern engineering, in many parts enabled by 3D printing.
