A video posted to YouTube last week shows Boston Dynamics’ humanoid robot Atlas balancing on one foot, while standing on a 2cm thick plywood edge.

The team writes: “This video was recorded during a lucky run, usually the robot is not able to maintain balance for this long. The shaking is caused by poor state estimation (we only use onboard sensors). The control algorithm is developed by IHMC the robot was built by Boston Dynamics.”

Pretty impressive!
