Meet Atlas, a creation of Boston Dynamics.

According to the company:

Atlas is the latest in a line of advanced humanoid robots we are developing. Atlas’ control system coordinates motions of the arms, torso and legs to achieve whole-body mobile manipulation, greatly expanding its reach and workspace. Atlas’ ability to balance while performing tasks allows it to work in a large volume while occupying only a small footprint.

The Daily Mail reports Atlas is 6’9″ tall and 167 pounds.
