DARPA’s Atlas Robot the Real-Life Terminator

DARPA‘s newest military robotic creation is a little too close to our sci-fi imaginations WTF Science.


Called “ATLAS,” the robot is designed to travel across rough terrain, use human tools and climb using its hands and feet. DARPA — formally known as the U.S. Defense Department Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency — is currently challenging teams to create new software for the 6-foot-tall robot’s brain.

Is the ATLAS robot cool tech, or a sign of impending robot overlords?
