Atlas Robot Practices for the Olympics

Boston Dynamics has been working on their Atlas humanoid robot (previously at Neatorama), fine-tuning its balance, agility, and speed. The resulting improvements are approaching uncanny valley territory. Just watch Atlas show off the stuff he can do now!

This would be terrifying if Boston Dynamics was still working for DARPA to develop military robots. Or even Google, which is determined to take over the world. But the company was sold to SoftBank, a Japanese corporation. No wonder they taught Atlas to dance. Next, the robot will be serving tea in restaurants and keeping grandma company in the nursing home. If he ever gets a real face, you know it will be cute. -via reddit
