What would Mr. Miyagi think?

Google-owned Boston Dynamics showed off some new moves for its Atlas robot, including ‘The Crane’ from the classic movie ‘The Karate Kid.’

The robot also pulls off several other programmed poses, all while balancing on one foot on a stack of cinder blocks.

The new moves may help it compete in this year’s DARPA Grand Challenge after taking second place last year.

We’re not sure what will happen when it learns ‘Sweep the leg.’
