Fall Already!: Boston Dynamics' Latest Humanoid Robot Balancing On One Foot

September 14, 2016


This is a video of Boston Dynamics' latest Atlas robot balancing on one foot on an impressively thin piece of wood. What a skill to have! I can balance on one foot and look how far it's gotten me: nowhere. I've already been denied an act in the circus twice already even though I promised to set myself on fire.

Keep going for the video while I practice my jumpkicks.

Thanks to Will, who agrees standing is overrated.

    Not lastest version of Atlas robot and research being done here is 100% IHMC, not Boston Dynamics.

  • Smivey

    Soon, it will be balancing on our skulls.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Truly humanity's last act of defiance.

    It's cute now but when it gets equipped with a machine pistol and octo-copter pod for jump-jet activity, we'll all be dying fast.

  • Dom Saunders

    Well, you just took it from zero to 100 in a millisecond...

    On this site, it's mostly schtick about the evils of robots.

  • Hazakabammer

    Well then, how good of you to be a cheerful little conformist.

    They have your address in their electronic memory circuits.
