Two years ago, after the unveiling of his dog-like robot Spot, the company was ready to sell the mechanical beast to companies.

Spot is just under three feet long and has 3D vision, as well as 17 joints for agile movement.

Marc Raibert, CEO of Boston Dynamics, said he hopes that Spot can be used in a variety of industries including construction, delivery, security and home assistance.

"Built to be a robust and adaptable platform, Spot autonomously performs your remote industrial detection and control – and it's available for purchase," Boston Dynamics shared.

Although Boston Dynamics has not yet revealed the costs, it is said that it costs as much as a luxury car, Gizmodo reported.

This robot is specially designed to help in the workplace, because it can carry loads, avoid obstacles and resist dusty and wet environments.

Although Spot can open doors and carry items, Atlas is designed for a show.

Boston Dynamics, based in Waltham, Massachusetts, unveiled Atlas to the public in 2017.

However, the 6 foot 9 (1.7 meters) 167 pounds (75 kg) humanoid worked behind doors closed in 2013 – but the robot could barely walk & # 39 ;.

The robot has a great ability to keep its balance even when users are trying to push it.

To remain standing, Atlas has stereo vision, range detection and other sensors that give Atlas the ability to manipulate objects in its environment and walk rough terrain.

According to Boston Dynamics, Atlas is a high-mobility humanoid robot designed to negotiate rough, off-road terrain.

Now, with the help of advanced software, Atlas seems to be preparing for a gold Olympic medal.

WHAT IS THE ATLAS HUMANOID ROBOT FROM BOSTON DYNAMICS?

Atlas the most human-like robot in the Boston Dynamic line-up.

It was first unveiled on July 11, 2013.

According to the company, Atlas is a high mobility & # 39; humanoid robot designed to negotiate rough, off-terrain & # 39 ;.

Atlas is 1.5 m long and weighs 75 kg (11.8).

The humanoid walks on two legs and leaves his arms free to lift, carry and manipulate objects in his environment.

Atlas is able to maintain its balance when it is pushed or pushed by an external force. If it falls over, the human-like robot can stand up independently again

Thanks to stereo vision, range detection and other sensors, Atlas can walk on rough terrain and keep his balance.

& # 39; In extremely challenging terrain, Atlas is strong and sufficiently coordinated to climb hands and feet and make its way through busy spaces & # 39 ;, Boston Dynamics claims.

Atlas can maintain its balance when it is pushed or pushed.

If the human-like robot falls over, it can stand up by itself.

Atlas is designed to assist emergency services in search and rescue operations.

The robot will be used to close valves, open doors and operate powered equipment in environments where human rescuers could not survive.

The US Department of Defense said it has no interest in using Atlas in warfare.

Atlas is able to –

  • Get up after falling over
  • Run
  • Balancing on a narrow beam
  • Cleaning, including vacuuming and sweeping
  • Karate kick
  • Throw a paper plane

"Atlas has one of & # 39; the world's most compact mobile hydraulic systems & # 39;" is the Boston Dynamics site.

"Custom engines, valves and a compact hydraulic unit enable Atlas to deliver high power to each of its 28 hydraulic couplings for impressive performance."

The humanoid is built with lightweight, 3D-printed parts, making it jump strong and allow for more flexible movements.
