Boston Dynamics’ humanoid robot can now jump up stairs like a parkour pro

Boston Dynamics/YouTubeBoston Dynamics’ Atlas robot.
  • Robotics company Boston Dynamics released a video of one of its robots doing parkour.
  • The Atlas robot, which is humanoid in appearance, jumps over a log and then hops up a series of platforms.
  • Boston Dynamics is famous for creating robots whose movements closely resemble humans and animals.

Boston Dynamics, the robotics company formerly owned by Google, keeps giving its humanoid robots new abilities.

They can open doors, go for a jog outside, and even resist being pulled around by human engineers. Now those same engineers have given one of their robots the ability to do parkour.

Atlas is Boston Dynamics’ humanoid robot, who you may have already seen performing a backflip.

In a video published by Boston Dynamics on Thursday, Atlas runs and jumps over a log (no big deal, we’ve seen it do this before) and then proceeds to nimbly hop up a series of platforms.

Watch Atlas do parkour here:

In the past Boston Dynamics has caused a stir by creating robots which imitate human or animal movement, such as its dog-like robots which inspired an episode of “Black Mirror.”
