Most advanced humanoid robot unveiled

Washington, July 13 (ANI): One of the most advanced humanoid robots ever built was unveiled on Thursday as part of the DARPA Virtual Robotics Challenge in Waltham, Massachusetts.

Called ATLAS, the giant is controlled by a human operator, who guides the sensors, hydraulics, and limbs through a range of natural motions, Fox News reported.

He can walk up stairs, stay upright after getting hit with heavy weights, and climb over or around obstacles in his path-and may ultimately boost the ability of first responders in a disaster scenario.
