Killer Robots Target Fat Boys that can't Parkour

If you have not been brushing up on your cardio or parkour skills, you likely just slipped a bit further down on the Darwin list when it comes to welcoming our robot overlords. Thanks Boston Dynamics.

Atlas does parkour. The control software uses the whole body including legs, arms and torso, to marshal the energy and strength for jumping over the log and leaping up the steps without breaking its pace. (Step height 40 cm.) Atlas uses computer vision to locate itself with respect to visible markers on the approach to hit the terrain accurately.
