Boston Dynamics' six-foot humanoid bot Atlas is breaking out of the lab... and going for walkies in nearby forests. After demonstrating that its four-legged dog robot can now open doors courtesy of a new limb, the Google-owned robot company showed how it's testing the limits of its humanoid robot. Yep, the walker is still tethered -- for now -- but it still managed to stroll all around in Mother Nature while closely approximating the gait of a drunken uncle. Watch (and perhaps worry) right after the break.
