Watch A Boston Dynamics Robot Nail Parkour

Robots honestly just keep getting better and better at being human, often to the point where a Terminator-esque takeover seems plausible. In yet another step forward, the team over at Boston Dynamics are continuing to take it to the next level with their progressions in the field. A by-product of this is the creation of epic and hilariously entertaining videos that let us see their beasts in action.

Above is a one-minute clip which follows their latest project Atlas as it dashes through a course of blocks of varying heights with ease, while also making 360 turns in mid-air. It’s damn impressive and well worth a look to see the bot in parkour mode. Atlas even has a little celebration motion after it nails a back flip, providing that little touch of humanity.
