Boston Dynamics is known for making cool robots.
Their robots are the closest to humans. They walk like us and even perform complicated tasks like parkour, sprinting, backflips and many more gymnastic stunts.
In fact, Boston Dynamics robots have set the new standard of robotics.
However, in a new video released to ring in the New Year, they can be seen performing some really cool moves that are certain to blow your mind.
The video shows Boston Dynamics entire lineup of robots — the humanoid Atlas, the dog-shaped Spot and the box juggling Handle — all come together in a bopping, coordinated dance routine set to The Contours’ Do You Love Me.However, this is not the first time the company has shown the dancing skills of its robot. In 2018, it showcased a video of its Spot robot doing the Running Man to Uptown Funk.
But the new video just takes things to another level completely. Atlas robot just sets the dance floor on fire by smoothly running, jumping, shuffling and twirling through different moves.
The American engineering and robotics design company founded in 1992 as a spin-off from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
It was initially known for its dog-like robots (notably the DARPA-funded BigDog, a precursor to the company’s first commercial robot Spot.) It was then bought by Alphabet’s X division in 2013 and then by Softbank in 2017.
It was recently purchased by Hyundai in a whopping $1.1 billion deal.
Robotics is one of the important verticals of future technology and it has a lot of promising opportunities as well.
Thanks to Boston Dynamics, it certainly gives us a glimpse of what the future can really be!
