A film noir style CGI graduation short by students of Supinfocom Valenciennes in France. To wit:

After a heist that goes wrong, a frail robot who was the driver of a robot mafia ends up being in possession of some loot he shouldn’t have, a human heart. Tempted by the opportunity of being like his bosses, he grafts the heart to himself and discovers the feeling of being alive. But those brief instants of life have a price.

Boston Dynamics’ Atlas robot – it does parkour now. To wit:

We created the manoeuvres using new techniques that streamline the development process. First, an optimisation algorithm transforms high-level descriptions of each manoeuvre into dynamically-feasible reference motions.  Then Atlas tracks the motions using a model predictive controller that smoothly blends from one manoeuvre to the next.

…and then kills all humans.
