Atlas
A formidable presence at 6 feet, 2 inches, Boston Dynamics' humanoid Atlas robot is designed for high mobility and can negotiate outdoor, rough terrain. The robot walks like a human so its upper limbs, like ours, can lift or carry things as well as help it move throughout the environment. The robot was funded by money from the Department of Defense's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA, but now that Boston Dynamics has been purchased by Google it's not clear if Atlas is being groomed as the soldier of the future. No matter, it's definitely a precursor for what's to come in state-of-the-art military robot technology).  (Source: Boston Dynamics/Google)
