Watch Boston Dynamics' Atlas and SpotMini Robots Run and Navigate Themselves

The videos from Boston Dynamics are embedded below. This was also the subject of the company's last two videos which saw the robot kicked around, as well as a display of an arm attachment.

Boston Dynamics was bought from Google's parent company, Alphabet, by Japanese firm SoftBank in August previous year, but it looks as though developments are surging ahead. Additionally, the robot is able to "manipulate objects in its environment... travel on rough terrain..."

Good boy? We certainly hope so.

People are anxious that a Terminator-style robot apocalypse may be around the corner, after a new video emerged of a robot jogging casually across grass.

Boston Dynamics promises viewers that SpotMini isn't being remotely controlled, although it was given a manual run through the area first to map the space. Now, it can walk by itself using autonomous navigation, walking up and down stairs. Once the operator presses "go", the robot takes off unassisted. This clip of the SpotMini robot running around the office showcases just how well this quadruped robot can navigate even the trickiest of scenarios.
