Boston Dynamics, the robotics company formerly owned by Google, keeps giving its humanoid robots new abilities.
Atlas is Boston Dynamics' humanoid robot, who you may have already seen performing a backflip.

In the past Boston Dynamics has caused a stir by creating robots which imitate human or animal movement, such as its dog-like robots which inspired an episode of "Black Mirror." Spot is designed for indoor and outdoor operation and has been the breeding ground for a new approach to dynamic robot control that brings true autonomy within reach.
