Boston Dynamics SpotMini dog takes itself on an autonomous walk

In the future Atlas will probably just vaporise the log or something

While it may sound anticlimactic compared to Atlas' flipping capabilities, as with all Boston Dynamics videos, it is thoroughly enjoyable to behold.

Each Boston Dynamic's video released to YouTube makes the world both more impressed and more terrified at the potential these robots could have.

The last time we saw the Atlas, it was jumping onto some platforms and doing a backflip. Additionally, the robot is able to "manipulate objects in its environment... travel on rough terrain..."

Atlas has come a long way from the robot that slowly trudged through a snow back in 2016. It can now jog and jump over obstacles, besides being able to lift objects as heavy as 10 lbs and open doors.

Hamas warns Israel of "starving tiger" at Gaza border
Organisers of the protest said they expected tens of thousands of Gazans to gather at border encampments in the coming days. Yehiyeh Sinwar has said Monday's crowd will be unarmed and peaceful, but also compared it to a "starving tiger".

Boston Dynamics said the robot is manually driven through the space to build a map using visual data from front-facing camera.

"SpotMini autonomously navigates a specified route through an office and lab facility".

The robot shot to fame earlier this month when Boston Dynamics released a video titled 'Hey Buddy, Can You Give Me a Hand?' showing a SpotMini robot dog holding a door using a clawed hand.
