Boston Dynamics' Atlas robot can now jog

Atlas robot

Earlier this year, Boston Dynamics released a new video of its SpotMini robot dog - showing the dog resisting an owner armed with a hockey stick. The video posted on YouTube shows Boston Dynamics' humanoid robot Atlas running across different types of terrain, from open land to gentle slopes - and nothing can slow him down.

The engineers at Boston Dynamics devote much time to the improvement of the finished robots. Additionally, the robot is able to "manipulate objects in its environment... travel on rough terrain..." We all remember the Atlas robot performing the backflip better than most humans.

"Atlas' control system coordinates motions of the arms, torso and legs to achieve whole-body mobile manipulation, greatly expanding its reach and workspace", the company says of the two-legged robot.

The camera comprises of a dual 12MP module with one being a wide-angle lens and the other a telephoto lens. At least, according to a possible render of the Galaxy Note 9 shared by mobile tipster Ice Universe .

We also remember the robotic dog SpotMini, which broke the internet with its comparison to the killing machines in the popular TV show Black Mirror after it was seen opening a door in the video.

SpotMini navigates indoors and outdoors, completing the route in just over six minutes.

"During the autonomous run, SpotMini uses data from the cameras to localize itself in the map and to detect and avoid obstacles", Boston Dynamics said in notes accompanying the video. Once the operator presses "go", the robot takes off unassisted.
