Boston Dynamics, the robotics branch of Alphabet, released video of its latest, very humanlike robot named Atlas, Quartz first reported. The robot, 5'9" and 180lbs, has several human qualities which make it hard to watch when designers later start to kick, push and bully Atlas. The video of Atlas' abuse continues until it finally decides to leave.
