   Robotics company Boston Dynamics released a video of its humanoid Atlas robot leaping through a parkour obstacle course this week.
   In“Atlas does parkour. The control software uses the whole body including legs, arms, and torso, to marshal the energy and strength for jumping over the log and leaping up the steps without breaking its pace,” Boston Dynamics explained in the description of the video. “Atlas uses computer vision to locate itself with respect to visible markers on the approach to hit the terrain accurately.”
   Boston Dynamics has previously demonstrated Atlas’ ability to pick up objects, open doors, jog, get off of the ground after a fall, withstand attacks from humans, and perform backflips. the video, Atlas can be seen running over a log and jumping up a series of platforms.
