    A May 10, 2018, YouTube video shows a Boston Dynamics robot running and jumping through a leafy neighborhood.

    Boston Dynamics' Atlas robot has wowed us with a backflip and amused us with its iffy box-stacking abilities. In a video posted Thursday on the company's YouTube channel, the humanoid robot demonstrates its running ability, NBC News reported.


    It's quite a feat for the robot's creators, but it might not reassure people who worry that smart, agile machines like Atlas are harbingers of a robot apocalypse.

    "Wow, kinda scary," one commenter said of the video.
