Boston Dynamics ATLAS Robot Gets an Upgrade
Boston Dynamics has released a video demonstrating a new upgraded version of its upright walking ATLAS robot. It’s still scary as hell and marches us one step closer to a robot controlled Earth. Watch as it leaves the robot facility all on it’s own and opens the door to go outside – without human permission.

Boston Dynamics’ Atlas Robot Cleans House
In this new video, we see Boston Dynamics’ imposing, but capable Atlas Robot doing a bit of house cleaning. It’s about time robots did something useful, instead of just learning new ways to kill us. Or at least after they do us in, they will be able to clean up and hide the evidence.

Boston Dynamics Wishes Us a Terrifying, Robot-filled Christmas
Boston Dynamics has given us a nightmare before Christmas by releasing a video of three of its creepy-ass trotting robots. The only way this video could be more terrifying is if Hector from Saturn 3 was in the sleigh wearing Santa’s head and capturing all the hot blondes.

Boston Dynamics Spot Robot Dog: The Robotdogpocalypse is Coming!
We all know Boston Dynamics BigDog, a quadrupedal robot designed to navigate rough terrain. Now BigDog has a little dog sibling called Spot. Spot weighs only 160 lbs, has four hydraulic legs, a sensor head, and a crazy ability to stay upright even when kicked by a human or climbing slopes and uneven ground.

This Robot Does the Crane Kick
Remember the famous crane kick from The Karate Kid movie? Well, check out this robot’s pose. It took Ralph Macchio a while to get it right, but the guys at Boston Dynamics have trained this robot to be a karate champion – and he probably picked it up much faster than Macchio.

Petman Robot Tries on Some Clothes
If there’s one company that has the best chance of bringing the robopocalypse to reality, it has to be Boston Dynamics. Between BigDog, AlphaDog, Cheetah and Sand Flea, they’re building a veritable army of robo-animals on behalf of DARPA.

Alpha Dog Robot Can Move More Quietly (But You Can Still Escape It)
So we recently saw Boston Dynamics updated Cheetah robot which is now capable of outrunning humans, and now we have video of the latest improvements to their DARPA funded Alpha Dog robot. Alpha Dog is slower than Cheetah because it is built for different tasks.

Cheetah Robot Can Outrun Usain Bolt

Cheetah Robot Can Outrun Usain Bolt
Remember the Cheetah robot, developed by Boston Dynamics for DARPA? It wasn’t long ago that the robot hit a top speed of 18mph, which seemed insanely fast for a hunk of metal with four legs. Now the quadruped ‘bot has smashed its own record, running faster than the world’s fastest man.

Sand Flea Robot Can Jump 30 Feet in the Air
If anyone has a shot at being the real life Cyberdyne Systems, I think it’s Boston Dynamics. Between their Big Dog, Alpha Dog, Cheetah and other walking robots, they’re building some of the most incredible robotic creatures out there.

Darpa Cheetah Robot Sets Speed Record, Time to Run, Time to Hide
Those mad scientists at the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) won’t be happy until we are all hunted down by their creations. Working towards this goal, some of their robot animals are getting way faster than you or I can run.

Alpha Dog Robot Going to Boot Camp
Boston Dynamics‘ LS3 Alpha Dog robot was designed to help American soldiers as a way to carry almost 400 pounds of gear on difficult terrain in the field. Now Alpha Dog is finally ready to enter basic training.

Boston Dynamics BigDog Robot: Will it Eat PIGORASS for Lunch?

Boston Dynamics BigDog Robot: Will it Eat PIGORASS for Lunch?
A reader pointed out that the PIGORASS four-legged robot I mentioned yesterday was somewhat flimsy (I don’t agree) compared to this more sturdy offering from Boston Dynamics. They call it the BigDog and it will most probably eat your real dog for lunch (it can be weaponized).
