Boston Dynamics robot can stack boxes with amazing ease


New video from Boston Dynamics, the Waltham, Massachusetts-based robotics company, shows a pair of birdlike robots stacking cardboard boxes in a warehouse, gliding about on wheels as they lift, move and place the boxes with precision and uncanny grace. The robots are guided by machine vision and capable of handling boxes weighing up to 33 pounds, according to a caption for the video, which was posted on YouTube on Thursday.
