Atlas Shrugged!

The company that brought you Big Dog has given Atlas – a battery powered, hydraulically actuated machine that perceives via LiDAR and stereo vision – considerably more agility with backflip capabilities.
Atlas’s control system coordinates the motions of its arms, torso, and legs to achieve whole-body mobile manipulation and – like Big Dog – can keep its balance when pushed. It can also get up if it falls over, which comes in handy when a flip goes wrong.
Video of the week: Atlas turns gymnast with a flip and a tumble
