Scared yet? Boston Dynamics’ humanoid robot can now jog freely

Scared yet? Boston Dynamics’ humanoid robot can now jog freely

Boston Dynamics’ Atlas robot has been untethered and set free, which, for anyone convinced of an imminent robot uprising, is a rather worrying development.

A video posted on YouTube this week shows the humanoid robot running at a fair clip across open land before jumping over a log that it finds in its path.

It’s impressive stuff, and shows just how far bipedal robots have come in a short space of time. For proof, check out this amusing compilation video from a contest in 2015 showing a bunch of similarly designed robots looking as if they’ve spent a night drinking as they simply try to walk, let alone break into a jog à la Atlas.

Re: BREAKING!! Boston Dynamics’ humanoid robot can now jog freely!!! take a look! video!
Few things succeed in riling up the Internet faster, unleashing a unique cocktail of amazement and terror, than a new Boston Dynamics robot video.

In the past, the tech company, owned by Japan’s SoftBank Group, has released videos showing their robots climbing stairs, executing perfect back flips and opening doors with shocking facility.

The company’s latest YouTube submission: a 34-second clip of their boxy humanoid robot, Atlas, going for a jog in a grassy residential area on what appears to be a bright spring day.

With his electronic appendages unleashing a animatronic whine that falls somewhere between an electronic knife and a Xerox machine, Atlas even stops to hop over a log before casually going on his bipedal way.

RELATED: [People freaked out after robot dogs opened a door. Now they’re resisting humans.]

In only a day, the video has racked up more than 900,000 page views, a testament to the powerful impression Boston Dynamics’s videos continually leave on viewers. For some, the Atlas is an exciting childlike underdog signaling that a Jetsons-like future is nearly upon us.

the first video relised by boston dynamics back in the days was together with a second video (not promoted) available on their medis section on their site with the interview to the ceo...at the question what bigdog was designed his candid replie was: to hunt down humans.

this is like the video of the jevvs saying they received text messages to not go to work in the morning of 9/11 aired live on TV...a video who disappeared to not be seen again.

I am happy to see this kind of progress being made.

How long will it be until we can have robo-nannies, robot companions for elderly who can shop, assist them, take their aging owners to appointments, clean the house, fix a meal and serve it, and do the dishes afterwards? I think that the day will come and it may be within the next 20 years or sooner. Sadly I'm sure DARPA will use the same tech to replace human soldiers on the battlefield and these wonders of technology will be used first to kill and only late to care for and nurture humanity where it needs care and nurturing the most.

And of course these will cost upwards of $100k at first. But the costs will come down and production will go up and soon we'll get used to robots in the grocery store or acting as a driver or a care giver for an elderly patient. But the costs will soon be proven to be well worth it when it's obvious you're getting a servant, companion, nurse, and personal assistant all rolled into one. Remember it doesn't need to eat, sleep, etc.
