With a namesake like Atlas, you wouldn’t suppose Boston Dynamics’ bipedal robotic can be probably the most lithe specimen on the planet. However then we’ve already seen it has a knack for parkouring, and now you possibly can add dancing to its checklist of skills. In its newest sure-to-be viral video, we see Atlas and the whole Boston Dynamics household, together with the dog-like Spot and box-stacking Handle, dance to “Do You Love Me” from The Contours. And as a 6’2 man, let me simply say I’m jealous that something so tall can transfer with a lot mobility and beauty.
This isn’t the primary time we’ve seen a Boston Dynamics robotic gyrate its limbs to a basic tune. Again in 2018, the then SoftBank subsidiary shared a video of Spot dancing to “Uptown Funk.” Watching the 2 clips consecutively highlights simply how far the corporate’s robots have are available two quick years. The dance we noticed Spot pull off in 2018 was spectacular, but it surely wasn’t in a position to dance pointe like its 2020 counterpart.
