The robot is Atlas, one of Boston Dynamics’ robots and aside from leaping over boxes, it can also do backflips, which may look trivial and circusy but this is a technological achievement and a milestone by itself.
As far as I know, no other robot can perform a successful backflip and there are lots of companies and developer attempted this but failed. Just go to Youtube to watch a slew videos documenting failed attempt for robot to mimic human mobility.
