The Atlas robot walks better than many humans over terrain with shifting rocks. I finally found a video of it in China, and its balancing ability on one foot or while walking is both strange and admirable. Congratulations to the Japan team on winning the contest. It is notable to also mention Japan's Kuratas mech. It must be a lot of fun to hop in and pilot.
