Boston Dynamics, a famous robotics company, has released a new video in which its Atlas bipedal robot performs a common task such as getting down from a high platform or ladder to pick up a tool.

The video demonstrates the robot’s ability to perform complex tasks that require precision and coordination, such as lifting a plank to build a bridge and carrying an object without tipping over as it jogs onto the platform.

We already saw him months ago jumping as if he were a human athlete, but this video is already from another world

The video of the robot of the future

In the video, Boston Dynamics’ bipedal robot is shown picking up a bag of tools from a high platform and carrying it back to the jobsite. The precision and coordination of the robot when lifting a plank to build a bridge and carrying the bag without falling is impressive, making it clear that it can perform complex tasks.

Utilities for Atlas

We already know that it is capable of walking on uneven terrain and doing stunts, such as parkour, which makes it clear what it could be used for outside of the lab:

Construction and maintenance tasks: Atlas could be used to carry out construction and maintenance tasks in environments that are dangerous or difficult for humans to access, such as places with high temperatures or radiation.

emergency assistance: Atlas could be used to search and rescue people trapped in dilapidated buildings or in hard-to-reach places, as it is capable of moving on uneven terrain and carrying out precise tasks.

Logistics and Transportation: It could be used to load and unload goods, handle packages and transport objects in industrial environments and warehouses.

Exploration: Atlas could be used to explore extreme environments, such as space or the bottom of the sea, since it is capable of moving on uneven terrain and carrying out precise tasks.

Of course, he could also star in dystopian future movies, but we have to be optimistic about it.
