Freaked out by robot

In honor of the original thread on TPCR. :slight_smile: Today Hyundai-owned Boston Dynamics released a video introducing their latest creation, after retiring the original hydraulic Atlas robot yesterday.

The switch to electric actuators allegedly cuts cost considerably, and they gave it a huge (dare I say creepy?) range of motion. Enjoy!

Techcrunch wrote a nice article about the release:

Many functions are still missing;

It still needs to learn how to properly pee on the wall, chew the furniture and drool on the carpet.


For $16,000, your personal ticket to the coming robot apocolypse…

It would be nice to have this kind of robot, fully controllable remotely with a virtual reality headset

Found this on youtube…

I’m fairly sure my cat would get freaked out by this robot. She’s timid.

What about this? Is this freaking enough?

OK, you win, now I gotta go :vb_puke:
