Humanoid Robot can now do a Backflip

Atlas humanoid robot with remarkable movement abilities, can now do a backflip.

Now, Boston Dynamics Atlas robot team, nearly two years since the last update, posted a footage of their latest achievements, with the robot doing a backflip.

Atlas now can scale higher obstacles by jumping, can do a 180 degree horizontal spin and it can also do an amazing full backflip.

Boston Dynamics, a robotics lab that started out from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), creates humanoids with the motion of humans and animals.

Atlas has sensors and uses LIDAR in its body and legs, to keep balance and to detect and avoid obstacles.
