Before the circus performances, the mechanical humanoid Atlas is still far away. However, the company’s engineers have already managed to teach him to do a somersault, and, without any kind of safety.

As you can see, from now on the AI ​​is able to climb to insignificant heights, from which it successfully and performs a jump with a coup. Four years for such a project is clearly not wasted.

Actually, the video itself shows not only the successful jumps of the robot Atlas. In the end, it also contains unsuccessful attempts. Surprisingly, although we are used to the clips from Boston Dynamics, this one became really viral and collected hundreds of thousands of views in a matter of hours.
