Boston Dynamics Shows Off New Robot in Video — Take a Look at Humanoid’s ‘Impressive’ Capabilities

Such capabilities include the ability to open doors, walk on uneven snowy terrain and squat to pick up boxes.

But what really caught the eye of many was the humanoid’s new ability to endure abuse. When pushed from behind, for instance, the robot was able to quickly determine how to get back on its feet — something hailed as “impressive” by the MIT Technology review.

“Only a few months ago, that kind of resiliency was almost unheard of,” it said.
