Video: Boston Dynamics’ Killer Ninja Robot, Atlas, Can Now Perform Backflip

When these robots that can mimic humans are set for mass distribution, will Wal-Mart, or Frys, sell pocket size EMP devices? I mean, there needs to be some sort of defense once these things become self-aware and Skynet takes over.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen any updates to the Atlas robot after Alphabet sold Boston Dynamics to SoftBank in June. After unveiling a teaser of its SpotMini robot just a few days ago, the company is now back with a new video of Atlas just casually performing gymnastics moves like it’s Tokyo 2020. Most of the video highlights the Atlas’s ability to hop up straight and stabilize itself on a platform, and jump while turning 180 degrees. Its movements are more fluid than ever, and Atlas appears to maintain great form.
