Humanoid robot runs through the park by itself

It’s taken three years for Boston Dynamics’ robot to be able to jog unaided outside, but now it can run across grass and leap over logs. With their advanced sensors, hiding from robots has never been an option, but running from their often plodding frames has been, until now. Atlas can now run after you. The new video shows Atlas running in what can only be described as a showy jog, striding with purpose and hinting that at any stage it might break into a lightning-quick sprint. There’s even been a version fitted with wheels allowing it to zip across rooms, jump on to tables and terrify human observers.
