The drudge can stop itself descending over in a snow

After a impulse of reflection, a drudge pushes a arms out and jolts itself upright, before rather dejectedly walking out of a building.

Other demonstrations shown in a video posted by Boston Dynamics uncover Atlas walking around in a snow, righting itself whenever it encounters formidable terrain.

“It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated,” a association explained.

“It uses sensors in a physique and legs to change and LIDAR and stereo sensors in a conduct to equivocate obstacles, consider a turf and assistance with navigation.”

The drudge is 5ft 9in (175cm) high and weighs 180lb (82kg).
