Created by US Robotics Company Boston Dynamics who shot and shared video, the humanoid robot Atlas once fell flat on its face, but now it can box jump like a pro and land a perfect backflip.

Atlas has the ability to balance, along with a high strength-to-weight ratio and a complex range of sensors.

The robot is able to coordinate the function of a torso, arms, and legs to achieve a whole body manipulation.

The team now has its sights set on their own many-legged robot to explore areas like the Amazon.
