New Humanoid Robot Gets Up Off The Floor

A new humanoid robot from Boston Dynamics can actually get up off the floor from a laying down flat position.  Apparently, the robot will twist and turn in whatever direction required to accomplish the task.  It is also amazing that all the robot’s joints seem to be able to rotate 360 degrees when necessary.

Of course this isn’t the way a human would get into a standing position, but it works for the robot!
