Atlas from BostonDynamics is quite a special humanoid robot. It has a control system that coordinates motions of the arms, torso, and legs to maintain balance while performing tasks. It has 3D printed components to save weight and space.
The robot was already capable of negotiating rough terrain and manipulating objects. As the latest video from BostonDynamics demonstrates, Atlas is now capable of performing perfect backflips. Pretty special, don’t you think?
