Boston Dynamics releases video of Atlas robot doing parkour — and behind-the-scenes footage of crashes

Much has been said about the possibility robots from Boston Dynamics will chase down humans in some hypothetical android apocalypse, and new video suggests they'd have no issue navigating obstacles while doing so.

But what the latest demonstration of the prototypical humanoid Atlas's abilities doesn't show is they also crash.

A lot.

In fact, the US-based company estimates they still crash about half the time while performing the parkour routine filmed to showcase Atlas's nimbleness.
