Viral video shows Boston Dynamics' humanoid robot, Atlas, jump and backflip


Boston Dynamics' humanoid robot can run, jump and backflip better than most of us and it has some on Twitter certain there's a "robocalypse" coming. And while we're (almost) 100 per cent sure the robots aren't coming for us just yet, there's no denying the video makes for an incredible watch. On YouTube alone, the video of Atlas the robot celebrating a perfect landing after a backflip has been watched over six million times in 48 hours.

Boston Dynamics posted the nearly minute-long video of Atlas the robot's impressive gymnastic moves on November 16.

The video shows the bipedal robot leap from block to block with ease. Atlas then does a backflip and lands firmly on its feet.

The robot even lifts its "arms" up in the air as if to celebrate.

But, as the bloopers towards the end of the video show, it wasn't always smooth sailing. So make sure you watch the entire video!

Watch the viral video below:



Impressive, right? 

Here's how Twitter is reacting to Atlas the robot's backflip:
    
Atlas the robot is 1.5 metres tall, weighs 75 kilograms and has 28 joints in its body.
