Boston Dynamics has not given up in the making of special especially the . Known to be among the top manufacturers of , the firm released a of one of its unique earlier this year.
The showcased the unique skill of the which had been spreading from one social media to another. Fans of had been sharing the to bring the notice of many individuals to it just like that of the .
Just a few months of its release, the has received over 400,000 views and still counting. The was stated by its producers, to possess the ability of doing virtually everything humans can do. There may not be doubt in that regard based on the physical actions the was able to do in the .
However, when it comes to overall intelligence such as speech, vocal recognition, facial recognition, and decision making, etc. one may hardly place the above the popular Sophia that completely mimics humans in every aspect but not in actions found in this .
Besides the numerous exercises the can perform, the most amazing is the backflip. From a height of about 3 feet above the ground, it was able to make a quick and perfect backflip covering over 180 degrees’ rotation to land on the lower without any sign of instability or damage of parts.
Though little had been said about this special , experts believed that Boston robotics deserve a kudos in that regard.
While still in the development stage, if its working principle is completely included into it; coupled with special AI for reasoning. The tendency of becoming superior in every aspect against other will be very possible.
There are other with similar appearance and stable feature, but few had been shown with a record making such a quick backflip. Though, not pointed as the intended benefit, such as this; can help in rescue missions because of its strength and .
The appearance of the has shown the main area of focus while developing the . Unlike other , head, artificial skin, and other vital parts of the humans are completely absent in it, except the presence of the two legs, two arms, fingers, and stomach. Despite the incomplete nature of its appearance, it has demonstrated features that showed the main area of focus of the developers which is strength, , and intelligence.
Though the video did not say much about the control aspect of the robot. It may be a self-stated-comment to say it operates autonomously. That is, working completely with AI. Robots with special features like this one may become programmable for different tasks using the AI technology.
Its ability to make speed backward-running and that of forward-running placed it superior over most humans with few exercising skills, especially the in carrying out some physical exercises such as the ones mentioned earlier.
