Boston Dyanmics, who Google just recently bought, is developing a robot that weighs just over 300 pounds and stands a lifelike 6’2″ tall.
Developers have taught this robot to stand on one leg and mock a famous move from the movie “Karate Kid.”
The robot features 28 hydraulically actuated joints and stereo vision, and is one of the most advanced robots ever created.
The Daily Mail reports it can also drive a car as well.
However, it’s not just karate – Ian has another trick up his sleeve – software written by the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Interaction which allows him to drive a car.
The robot, called Atlas, has a high mobility and is designed to negotiate rough terrain outdoors, according to Boston Dynamics.
