Boston Dynamics have done it again.

Following on from the viral success of the jumping robot man and the dog that can open doors, the robotics company has now released a video of a model which can run with eerie similarity to a human.

Atlas, the name given to this particular robot, can be seen in Boston Dynamics’ latest video jogging through a park before jumping a log with ease.

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

From 15p €0.18 $0.18 USD 0.27 a day, more exclusives, analysis and extras.

Fans of the robotics company will remember Atlas as the robot which backflipped off a box with the skill of a trained gymnast.

‘First we had driverless cars, now we have peopleless people’ commented one viewer on the company’s latest YouTube video.

Capitalising on the fear and admiration their creations inspire, the Massachusetts-based group's YouTube channel has amassed more than 100,000 views of its automatons' activities.
