It's not science fiction: it's Boston Dynamics' Atlas new version!
Watch Boston Dynamics' Atlas new version: Atlas is a high mobility, humanoid robot.
This new version of Atlas is about 5' 9" tall (about a head shorter than the DRC Atlas) and weighs 180 lbs. It is designed to operate outdoors and inside buildings, and specialized for mobile manipulation.
Atlas is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. It uses sensors in its body and legs to balance and LIDAR and stereo sensors in its head to avoid obstacles, assess the terrain, help with navigation and manipulate objects.
