If you haven’t been keeping up with Boston Dynamics’ development… Hyundai has, earlier this month, became the third owner of the company. Also, the agility of the family of robots from the robotic company, namely Atlas, Spot and Handle, is mind-blowing.
You saw Adam Savage made it do rickshaw duty. You have seen it patrolling the park of Singapore to keep social distancing in check and you have seen it worked as a pack to haul a truck. And now, it is finally available for sale.
You know in some apocalyptic movies, they have scenes of drones keeping people indoors (for whatever reasons)? Fortunately, we are not there, yet. Though, it is kind of happening in China and now, in Singapore.
Since the development and subsequently the commercial availability of Boston Dynamics’ robotic dog, Spot, the question has been” “what can it really can do?” Well, today (or more correctly, February 13) the question has been answered by maker extraordinaire/TV personality Adam Savage.
After showing off it is capable of pulling off back flip and executing parkour maneuvers, Boston Dynamics’ bipedal humanoid, Atlas, recently showed that it can do more parkour.

And mind you, though, the truck wasn’t a pickup truck; it was a full-sized truck. Obviously, the truck’s transmission […]
Like a creepy robot apocalypse film, Boston Dynamics Handle Robot from two years ago has evolved (thankfully, not on its own!). In the original, it was a biped on wheels and had a pair of arms, but now, it has been reimagined into a strange-looking animal-like robot that retains the biped with two wheels configuration, […]
I am sure we all remember Boston Dynamics Atlas. The humanoid robot that is capable of letting itself out of the door and take a stroll around the grassy compound. Since its introduction two years ago, Atlas has advanced to be able to pull of back flip and now, it does parkour too. Obviously, dear […]
Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s founder and CEO, tweeted an image of him walking a robotic dog with a comment “taking my new dog for a walk at the MARS2018 conference.” If you don’t already know, the robot dog is the same famous nightmare-inducing, robotic canine, SpotMini, that has been seen opening door to let itself out.
