The Boston Dynamics Atlas Robot Walks Through the Woods in a New Balance and Movement Test

During a recent presentation, Boston Dynamics founder Marc Raibert showed footage of the Atlas robot walking through a wooded area to test its balance and movement capabilities. Although the robot was still attached to a power tether, Raibert said they are working on a version without one.

The presentation was part of a longer event about making robots held at the Fab Lab 11 conference held recently in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
