Watch Robot That Looks Like Big Foot Stumble Through the Woods

Life-size humanoid robot takes a walk in the woods.

Unlike famous movie robots such as C-3PO, Atlas is shown connected to a power tether during its walk in the woods, although Boston Dynamics says that it is working on a untethered version of the bot. One of a number of innovative robots created by Boston Dynamics, Atlas has been designed to walk bipedally, leaving his upper limbs free to lift, carry and manipulate objects. “In extremely challenging terrain, Atlas is strong and coordinated enough to climb using hands and feet, to pick its way through congested spaces,” explains Boston Dynamics, on its website. You can’t predict what it’s going to be like.” Raiber said Atlas has “mobility that’s within shooting range of yours,” as a video of it picking through bushes and jogging on a woodland trail played next to him. According to Boston Dynamics’ website, Atlas has “28 hydraulically-actuated degrees of freedom, two hands, arms, legs, feet and a torso.” Its head features “stereo cameras and a laser range finder.” Currently, Atlas is tethered to an electric power supply, but Raiber revealed that they’re working on equipping Atlas with an untethered power source.
