Where form meets function

The rise of artificial intelligence continues year by year, as American engineering and robotics design company Boston Dynamics just unveiled the next update to its Atlas robot.

In the short video above, the humanoid machine now has the ability to jump between boxes at different heights, as well as jumping and spinning at the same time, and nailing a backflip, making its movements seem like it’s actually human or a robotic gymnast.

While the company continues to progress and perfect the design, we might just be years away from actually seeing a robot that will look and act like a real human being.
