Jumping, leaping robots are nothing new – but these tend to fit in the palm of your hand (or be even smaller than that). It’s hard to imagine full-size, bipedal robots capable of moves than even I have to catch my breath doing at the gym. But this BostonDynamics ‘Atlas’ robot makes it look seamless… maybe not a perfect 10, but a solid 8 for sure! Watch:
(That last cut though! The bloopers are at times more entertaining than the actual thing.)
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
