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!
