Boston Dynamics’ Latest Humanoid Robot Can Walk and Recover Balance

(TheWeek)  Google-owned Boston Dynamics recently unveiled footage of its latest version of Atlas, a 5-foot-9, 180-pound human-like robot walking through a field, occasionally slipping, “but always catching its balance.” Many two-legged robots can walk but none have been able to navigate uneven, unpredictable terrain.
There are no consumer applications for Atlas so far, but some think the machine will pave the way for robots that can take on complex tasks like preparing meals or caring for the elderly.
