A Boston Dynamics humanoid robot showcases balancing on one foot

A video produced by the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition showcases the humanoid robot Atlas  balancing on one foot.

This video was recorded during what the Institute said was a ‘lucky run’ as usually the robot is not able to maintain balance for this long. IHMC said the shaking effect was caused by the fact that the robot only features on-board sensors and no outside assistance.

The control algorithm is developed by IHMC the robot was built by Boston Dynamics.
