Atlas Robot Can Now Jump and Perform Somersault (video)

Ok, this is next level of awesomeness and scariness. Remember Boston Dynamics‘ Altas, the human lookalike robot? One and a half year ago, it can barely walk properly. Now, it can jump a distance and get this, perform a somersault.

You might be thinking what’s great about a robot doing a somersault. The thing is that its balancing capability and agility have improved so much that it is already doing things beyond what average human can do.

Give it (him?) a few more years, he is ready to take over jobs from the human. Watch this incredible footage.
